With Thanks to Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
One of the powerful quotes from King's account of the Montgomery story, Stride Toward Freedom, rings true even today. We've made lots of progress as a nation, and we still have a long way to go. Pray for us as we continue to face the very real impact of racism and white privilege, both as a nation and a community. (For a community response, see our Pastoral Open Letter.)
If America is to remain a first-class nation, it cannot have a second-class citizenship (Martin Luther King, Jr., Stride, 191).
