Martin Luther King Jr called the church to be faithful when it matters

 “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

“Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.”

“I have decided to stick with love. . . . Hate is too great a burden to bear.”

Today we remember Martin Luther King Jr - how he held us to our own standard - that all people are created equal and have rights from God, not from government.

Every year I read his letter from a Birmingham jail in which he calls pastors - the church - to do what Jesus Christ told them to do.
