Dear Brothers and Sisters,

This coming weekend as a nation we lift up the courageous ministry of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr!

On December 18, 1963 at Western Michigan University, Martin Luther King Jr gave a speech whose topic was “Social Justice and the Emerging New Age.” In it King explained why for justice to be justice it can not only be individual, but must also be social:

                    “All I’m saying is simply this, that all life is interrelated, that somehow we’re all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality tied in a single garment of destiny . Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. For some strange reason, I can never be what you ought to be. You can never be what you ought to be, until I am what I ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality.”  Rev Martin Luther King Jr

May God bless the “interrelated” nature of God’s Grace Community Church (GGCC) and every community that gathers in Jesus' name.  For there is much we can do together through the gift of “mutuality“ which could never be accomplished by mere individuality.

Missional opportunities…..

We will visit the National Civil Rights Museum which is built upon the Lorraine Motel where Dr. King was shot. We will also continue to build relationships with our brothers and sisters in Christ at Hopewell Baptist near Booneville.

Prayer Concerns: For Gloria Mitchell who is hospitalized with cancer; for leadership throughout the world; for marriages, families, and single people; for all police officers and firefighters.

See Galatians 3:28-29 for further reflection. Let us pray for our “oneness in Christ Jesus”.

Still in One Peace,

Pastor David J. Jensen
