How Wonderful, How Beautiful

January 21, 2019

On this MLK Day, it’s important to remember why this is a holiday in the first place: the life and legacy of The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

However, “I haven’t seen the churches organizing a race-relations conference,” says Robert J. Brown.

He’s known as “the civil rights power broker” according to Time magazine, which interviewed him for the January 28, 2019 issue.

“Online, it’s ridiculous,” he continues. “How’re you going to get people emotionally involved online? It ain’t going to happen. People need to meet in the flesh and blood.”

Couple that with Psalm 133:1-3

How wonderful, how beautiful,
when brothers and sisters get along!

It’s like costly anointing oil
flowing down head and beard,
Flowing down Aaron’s beard,
flowing down the collar of his priestly robes.

It’s like the dew on Mount Hermon
flowing down the slopes of Zion.

Yes, that’s where God commands the blessing,
ordains eternal life.

— and to quote Dr.King, “I have a dream.”
