“Our only hope today lies in our ability to recapture the revolutionary spirit and go out into a sometimes hostile world declaring eternal hostility to poverty, racism, and militarism.” Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, “Beyond Vietnam”
This Sunday, Feb 14th is a time to honor love. And lest we forget, the ads are everywhere reminding us of many ways we can purchase special gifts for that special someone in our lives.
But Feb 14th is also a chance to honor love in it’s fullest dimensions. Love in the form of courage, of the willingness to follow a dream; love kindled in the fire of God’s love for all of humanity despite the dangers of the wilderness.
This month we celebrate Black History Month, and this Sunday we honor the ongoing march to freedom, inspired by this great cloud of witnesses.
