In Memory: MLK (Mountaintop)

MLK + 3

Dreams:With this faith, we will be able to hew
out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope.”

“Make the pledge that we shall always march ahead.”

“To work and fight until justice runs down like water,
and righteousness like a mighty stream.”

“I’m not fearing any man.”

    50 Years Later,” this (Raushenbush’s) representation of certain “arc[s]” lifted (distinctly further). Thank You, for imparting such (historic) moving pictures and (clearly) spiritual waves. Maybe “50 Years [From Now],” many will be able to look back in amazement at/of how much was accomplished? Maybe, we are approaching new stages, where, if the most centered standings are not taken, the chance for “turn[ing] back” certain tides will never return?

      “The gospel at its best deals with the whole man, not only his soul but his body, not only his spiritual well-being, but his material well being. Any religion that professes to be concerned about the souls of men and is not concerned about the slums that damn them, the economic conditions that strangle them and the social conditions that cripple them is a spiritually moribund religion awaiting burial.”

    I just want to do God’s will. And he’s allowed me to go to the mountain. And I’ve looked over, and I’ve seen the promised land! I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the promised land. So I’m happy, tonight. I’m not worried about anything. I’m not fearing any man.”
