Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr

I Have a Dream

On August 28, 1963, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave a speech about a dream that inspired a generation. Today, the dream lives on.


Martin Luther King Day is a day to remember that the time is always right to do what is right.

To remember that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

To remember that forgiveness is not an occasional act but a permanent attitude.

To remember that faith is taking the first step even when you can't see the whole staircase.

To remember that our lives begin to end the day we become silent about the things that matter.

To remember that darkness cannot drive out darkness only light can do that, and that hate cannot drive out hate, no, only love can do that.

To remember to never succumb to the temptation of bitterness.

To remember that out of the mountain of despair, a stone of hope.

To remember that we still have a dream.

A Vibrant Unity

A world filled with people. Each one unique. Moved by various passions and filled with distinct gifts. No two lives are the same. Though their journeys may intersect, one’s path is their own. Each has their own voice, their own drive, and their own purpose. Too often, our uniqueness becomes a barrier. Our differences become divisive. The very things which make us individuals become steppingstones towards inequality, prejudice, and hatred. Yet there is one thing we have in common; we were all created in the image of God. At our very core, beneath the quirks and idiosyncrasies. Regardless of race or social status, we are all God’s handiwork. Fearfully and wonderfully made by a passionate Creator. A beautiful part of His creation. A tapestry designed to be at its most vibrant in unity.
