This is the Day that the Lord Has Made

"Grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." 2 Peter 3:18

Yesterday during the morning service, my nephew recited the names of the Presidents of the United States beginning with George Washington. He paused after saying the name of Bush 43. He recited the 1963 "I Have a Dream" speech of The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The power of the speech coming from the lips of an eleven year old was reinforced when after the speech, he then said the name of our 44th President, Barack H. Obama. The entire congregation was moved, almost to tears. Following his presentation a soloist sang, "Precious Lord." 

To achieve freedom in our land one will need spiritual freedom first. After which I believe you can grow in grace and knowledge. 

Today, we have much to be thankful. Today, we still have work to do.  

I remember standing on the steps in front of the Capital in January 1983 when Stevie Wonder took the stage and released the song, "Happy Birthday." 

Later Ronald Reagan signed into law the legislation that would make today a national holiday in honor of The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
