Remembering Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

There’s so much to update. I even have a few blogposts just waiting to be published about a number of new and old adventures. I’ll start writing again soon. Let’s just say that there is a lot of stuff happening. I’m going to a lot places and meeting a lot of people. There’s a lot of ReClaiming going on!

Today, I was reminded of a quote that Zwak typed up out of one of MLK Jr.’s books, the timeless words of a revivalist:

“The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state. It must be the guide and the critic of the state, and never its tool. If the church does not recapture its prophetic zeal, it will become an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority. If the church does not participate actively in the struggle for peace and for economic and racial justice, it will forfeit the loyalty of millions and cause men everywhere to say that it has atrophied its will. But if the church will free itself from the shackles of a deadening status quo, and, recovering its great historic mission, will speak and act fearlessly and insistently in terms of justice and peace, it will en-kindle the imagination of mankind and fire the souls of men, imbuing them with a glowing and ardent love for truth, justice, and peace”

Strength to Love, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., p. 62

  1. Recapture prophetic zeal?! Woohoo! Stop being afraid of the supernatural! We are naturally supernatural! Let’s open up our spiritual eyes and ears and turn it up a notch! Our creator has the solution to every problem on earth! Come on!
