Dare to Dream
We have many reasons to be thankful for the life of Dr. King. However, as Christians, one of the things we can be most thankful for is a wonderfully accurate depiction of a Christian man deeply rooted in his faith, wishing to bring Good to people all around him - black or otherwise. We can turn to the Bible to better understand Jesus, His Disciples, His Works, and God's Word. We can turn to people like Dr. King as an example of how to follow what the bible teaches us.
I pray for the future of this country, and that it can return to being one of the nations that others respect. I hope that we can remember one of the most respected historical figures we know was also an extremely devout Christian. I strongly believe that Faith alone can guide us out of some of the dark places we are heading as a nation. However, as individuals and families, regardless of our nation, know that God is still in control, and still has a plan for the way everything is unfolding.
I have a dream too - that someday, once I'm called home, people just like Dr. King will be waiting there for me with a grand smile on their face.
