To me it is a very good thing that the U.S. remembers Martin Luther King, Jr. on the 3rd Monday of January each year. It seems good that it launches us into a time in February called Black History Month.

A very special church service at Willow Creek Community Church on Martin Luther King weekend is something you may want to see. The interview with James Meeks from Chicago’s famous Salem Baptist Church of Chicago is fantasic.

May we learn more about this people group with whom we share our path. And in the learning, may it hopefully result in deeper understanding, compassion, and action.

Here is a good piece from a blog that I follow called, Tip of the Iceberg. Has anyone seen my old friend Martin?

I would love to have you share good articles with me that move us to understanding and about what it means to be black in a majority white culture in America.
