Insight from Martin Luther King, Jr.

  1. His endorsement was of Christ Jesus, not political parties or candidates.
  2. Stand up, but pursue legal channels for godly change.
  3. Have a dream…and share it.
  4. Be willing to suffer for godly goals.

“Shed a Little Light”  [James Taylor]

Let us turn our thoughts today to Martin Luther King and recognize that there are ties between us, all men and women living on the earth.  Ties of hope and love, sister and brotherhood, that we are bound together in our desire to see the world become a place in which our children can grow free and strong.  We are bound together by the task that stands before us and the road that lies ahead.  We are bound and we are bound.
