Fifty Years Later

Grant, O God, that your holy and life-giving Spirit may so move every human heart, and especially the hearts of the people of this land, that barriers which divide us may crumble, suspicions disappear, and hatreds cease; that our divisions being healed, we may live in justice and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (BCP 823)
Reflecting this morning on Dr. King's words, delivered fifty years ago. While a first-rate sermon delivered to a packed congregation on the mall, they still ring true as a quiet morning meditation five decades later. And remind us of the work that is still left to do. Let freedom ring!
