Story of a Week

mlk-in-birmingham-jailPastor Megan tells the story of her week: listening to her favorite of Martin Luther King Jr.’s speeches, “Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence” delivered at Riverside Church, listening to a public reading of King’s powerful Letter from a Birmingham Jail addressed to white clergy, pondering Matthew’s take on the beginning of Jesus’ public ministry – beginning with the jailing of John the Baptizer and quoting from Isaiah who was writing to those living in the deep anguish of exile, and finally marching with millions on Saturday.
