I feel what Henry Nouwen is inviting us to do is to live as authentically as we possibly can, every day! Every day we are called to let go of the things that control us in a way that force us to live lives that are victims of our false selves.
I think that is exactly what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. meant when he said, “I came to the conclusion that there is an existential moment in your life when you must decide to speak for yourself; nobody else can speak for you.”
I pray that each one of us will work towards living into that freedom!
- Freedom to be who I am.
- Freedom to say what I feel; not what someone is telling me to feel.
- Freedom to think for myself instead of being controlled by other people’s thoughts.
Coming Monday, January 21st, we will be celebrating the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at church, from 6-8 pm. Come, if you can and share how his life has shaped you or just come to be inspired by what others share. There will be a chili cook-off and open mic.
