Waiting

I read this statement in an essay about Martin Luther King a couple of days ago and haven't been able to get it out of my mind. I'm not sure if MLK said this, or if the essayist is interpreting.

I'm not going to say much about it; I'm just putting it out there for you to reflect upon. It resonated with me.

We are the people we have been waiting for.

  1. YES, we are the people we've been waiting for:

    1.) We are the people who now understand that God made all people, that God loves all people, and we are now ready to enact legislation to prove that we too love all people at our next conference.
    2.) We are the people who are volunteering to work in many ways toward the CEM 2020 vision for a strong, loving, caring church, that will expande into all of the communities of each of our lives to bring the peace of Jesus Christ to an often troubled people seeking peace and solace.
    3.) We are the people, grey as we are, who will work to invite children, teens and young adults to once again worship with us, work with us, pray with us.

    We are the people!
    Amen
