Caught in a network of mutuality…honoring the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

  “I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not…the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to ‘order’ than to justice; who prefers a negative peace, which is the absence of tension, to a positive peace, which is the presence of justice; who constantly says, ‘I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direction action.’…Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection…We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people…We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly…We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

Taking God Seriously

Book - These Words Changed Everything“My uncle’s new God is no different from the all the gods of our ancestors,” grumbled Mariano. “He demands perfection just like they do, and I cannot attain it!”

Reading Scripture in his Chamula language for the first time, he’d come across Mark 9:33:  “If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It’s better to enter eternal life with only one hand than to go into the unquenchable fires of hell with two hands” (NLT).  The Ten Commandments were no more encouraging. “I can’t keep those laws!” he said to himself.
