MLK Weekend 2019

This last week we celebrated MLK Weekend along with many other students and residents throughout the city... those of us who could make it outside in the cold for long enough anyway ;) A valiant group of us made it through icy driveways and out of our dorm rooms to Downtown Presbyterian Church for worship on Sunday, where Pastor Mike preached an apt sermon about how even though MLKs' dreams and Isaiah's prophecies aren't yet true, there is still prophecy within each of us. And we were reminded of that as we headed over to Woolworth's, to lunch where a group of four, then 19, then 85, and as many as 124 college students, Black and white, including Congressman John Lewis, sat and were willing to be arrested and even jailed, to shed light on the racism often seen during the 50s and 60s at lunch counters. It was very special to be together in this space, even with just a small group of us, to discuss what God might be calling us to "sit for" in 2019.
