MLK Day 2018


As we depart,
Both individually and collectively
Be who you are called to be.
In any and in all the ways you can
Seek justice.
Resist evil.
Stand strong against Death.
And all Death’s works and wiles.
Add your voice.
Move your feet.
Extend your hands.
And because it just might
Hold on to that long arc of history like your lives depend on it.
And pull
With as little or as much strength you have
So that together we might help it continue to bend in the direction of justice.
And peace.
And hope.
And promise.
For you and for me.
For us and for them.
For all of the children of God.

So, having been nourished by this evening’s gathering
It’s words and its witness.
Go now and be Peace.

Paul Alcorn is the Pastor of Bedford Presbyterian Church in Bedford, NY.
