Sunday, January 14: Who, Me?


Fifty-years after his death, we are still eagerly listening for Dr. King’s voice. People are remembering and sharing their favorite MLK quotes. A friend posted a photograph from the walls of the MLK memorial as his Facebook cover photo. And my husband bought a turn-table so we can listen to one of his favorite old records: Dr. King’s speech, “Remaining Awake through the Great Generation." It's a voice that has changed our lives and the world.

There are many voices calling to us in our world today. it’s easy to get confused, like young Samuel did many years ago. “Who, me?” But we want to know when it’s the voice of God and when God is speaking to us. It’s a voice that always says, “You are my beloved,” and a voice that calls us to meaningful and justice-centered action. So we are alert this weekend, not just to the voice of leaders like Dr. Martin Luther King who encourage us, but to the quiet slow awakening in our own hearts that leads to action. Listen. How is God calling you?
