Martin Luther King Jr. Day

               To mark the anniversary of Martin Luther King Day on January 20th.

 “The movement of the Spirit of God in the hearts of men and women often calls them to act against the spirit of their times or causes them to anticipate a spirit which is yet in the making. In a moment of dedication, they are given wisdom and courage to dare a deed that challenges and to kindle a hope that inspires.” 

The quote above is from Howard Thurman, an African American who played a critical role in laying the theological foundation for the civil right movement, who published them in 1959 in his book, Footprints of a Dream: The Story of the Church for the Fellowship of All Peoples.

Today I am thankful for the vision of Martin Luther King and all others who were inspired by him and grateful too that the Spirit of God is still alive in the hearts of women and men today to challenge discrimination and injustice.
