As Martin Luther King day comes to a close, let’s take a moment to reflect on all that has been accomplished and the intractable complexity of the problems that remain.
The low hanging fruit — discrimination in housing, employment, and public accommodations — has been addressed (but not solved completely). What remains is the struggle for hearts and minds. If you think that the Israelites were stubborn, look at the post racial debate.
Dr. King would want you to know that we will need grace for this phase because we are all implicated:
Find out how many slaves are working for you
See how much hidden bias lurks in your heart
How much do you really impact the environment?
Aaaah, the warm silence of conviction running, walking and strolling rampant.
