During the season of Lent, I will be sharing a short post each day as part of the Lent-Photo-a-Day Journey, providing a sort of brief reflection and witness through the journey to and through the cross, to the tomb, and out into the world.
I could have gone in a number of directions to share a picture of a dream. But frankly, one of the best articulations of a dream, and perhaps a comprehensive view of the Kingdom of God, comes from Martin Luther King Jr. and his “I Have a Dream” speech. Pictured here is a mural at the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site in Atlanta, Georgia.
Not only is it fitting for that reason, but I believe it’s an important reminder as we remember the march in Selma, Alabama fifty years after that march for voting rights this weekend. There is still so much important work to be done for equality, justice, love and rights for all.
What is your dream? How do you picture it? And, how do you share it with others?
