I Have a Dream

     On August 23, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King delivered his powerful “I have a Dream…” speech at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. [1] Dr. King said,

…I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today…

     The past few days, as I’ve watched what is happening in Charlottesville, Virginia, I’ve been thinking about Dr. King’s speech, pondering my own Grandma Susie dream.

I have a dream that my five precious grandchildren will one day live in a nation where the doctrine of Imago Dei is cherished and where no individual will be judged by skin color, but rather, each will be valued because he or she has been created in the image of a loving, kind, merciful and gracious God.

Yes, that is my dream today…

I pray we’ll never stop dreaming…
