Happy Martin Luther King Holiday!
Fifty three years ago, there was not a holiday for the acclaimed civil rights leader, but rather a struggle that would shape his generation and generations to come in this country.
Fifty three years ago, Susan McLeish's father was a young pastor who made the long trip to Washington D.C. to take part in what became a historic march. His pilgrimage shaped his ministry as it did for many clergymen of that era and brought to life the prophet Micah's marching orders for people of faith.
He has shown you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? -Micah 6:8

Prayer for Today
Merciful God, may your justice flow like a river. Open our hearts to the call to love kindness and to walk humbly with you, so that, we will glorify your name through loving our neighbor as our self, yea even loving our enemy beyond what we thought was possible. In Christ name we pray, Amen.
