“Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God and knows God”
1 John 4:7
Martin Luther King Jr., renewer of society, martyr, April 4, 1968.
Let us pray, Holy and righteous God, you created us in your image. Grant us grace to contend fearlessly against evil and to make no peace with oppression. Help us, like your servant Martin Luther King Jr., to work for justice among people and nations, to the glory of your name, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen. (Evangelical Lutheran Worship, pg. 60)
