Promised Land

Updated: Jan 23, 2019


"We As A People Will Get To The Promised Land!" - Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


"Somewhere I read that the greatness of America is the right to protest for rights.... We've got some difficult days ahead, but it really doesn't matter to me now, because I've been to the mountaintop... I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the promised land."



Silence

Use these words, or your favorite inspirational quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to enter into silent reflection.

"I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.”

"A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.”
