As our nation celebrates the life, example and sacrificial death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. today, let us join him in praying and working for peace, justice and equality for all.
though you may not ask me to give my life,
as did Dr. King,
that all might enjoy peace, justice and equality,
following in the way of Jesus,
give me the courage to work
for peace, justice and equality,
among those whose lives intersect with mine.
1 Sam 15:16-23
Ps 50:8-9, 16bc-17, 21, 23
