At an African Methodist Episcopal Church conference in Texas in 1998, Bishop John Richard Bryant startled his flock by proposing that they raise an offering for a Latino church holding a revival a block away. "For what?" he says his membership asked. "We're up here and they're down there." "Yeah," replied Bryant, then AME bishop of the Texas region, "but we're all brothers and sisters in Christ."

Kellogg Co. on Monday reported third-quarter net sales of $3.7 billion and also announced a four-year plan to cut costs that will include reducing its global work force by 7%, or about 2,000 jobs. Though the company largely met earnings expectations, its U.S. morning food sales declined 2.2% to $883 million in the quarter ending Sept. 28, Kellogg said.  Its U.S. snacks sales also declined, falling 2.4% to $886 million in the third quarter. Kellogg is not alone in suffering revenue drops amid a poor economy.

Inside his offices on the 30th floor of the downtown Wells Fargo building, John Bryant is surrounded by symbols of his success. Dozens of framed magazine articles, letters of gratitude and photos give testimony to the achievements of Bryant's Operation Hope Inc., a nonprofit investment banking campaign focused solely on the inner city. "Not bad," he likes to say, "for a little black boy from Compton."

John Chaney will not coach Temple in the Atlantic 10 Conference men's basketball tournament, part of a self-imposed punishment Monday for ordering rough play by one of his players in a recent game that resulted in an opponent's injury. Chaney, 73, already had been suspended by the school for the last three games of the regular season. He sent in a player he described as a "goon" against St. Joseph's last week, and Hawk senior John Bryant wound up with a broken arm.

Rep. John Bryant (D-Tex.), saying he was concerned about the state's weakened congressional delegation, announced Wednesday that he is abandoning a race for state attorney general and will seek reelection in 1990. Bryant said the resignation of House Speaker Jim Wright over ethics questions, the death of Rep. Mickey Leland in a plane crash and the retirement of Rep. Marvin Leath--all Democrats--"substantially weakened our delegation."

Like tourists headed out for a turnaround trip to Las Vegas, four busloads of bankers and executives sallied forth Wednesday for a look at that place they had heard so much about: South-Central Los Angeles and beyond. But in this city where it is possible to drive the freeways for a lifetime and never set foot in the neighborhoods whizzing by, this was not exactly the inner city the captains of corporate Los Angeles had been led to expect.
