This coming Sunday we’re going to sing for justice at First Congregational Church of Los Angeles. Literally and metaphorically.
Metaphorically, we’ll dedicate ourselves again to a vision of justice and racial equality. I’ll preach my sermon titled — “Why We Still Need Dr. King.” I plan to highlight some of the visits that Dr. King made to Los Angeles. Please join me if you’re in Los Angeles for what promises to be a very special Sunday. If you’re not in Los Angeles, take a minute this coming weekend and give thanks for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His vision of justice and peace are desperately needed today.
But we’ll sing literally too. In fact, our Director of Music, Dr. David Harris, is inviting anyone to join the choir for a Sunday! Show up this Sunday morning at 9.30 am and then sing for justice in our service with the Chancel Choir. If you have EVER sung in a choir, join them this week. If you’ve always wanted to sing in a choir, now is your chance. And if you want the best seat in the house, the sing this Sunday!
Let’s lift our voices for understanding and love and justice. Equality and peace and shared life together in our country. I love the diversity of our church. We’ve come a long way, but we have a long way to go. We’re trying to be a place of radical love and hospitality. See you Sunday as we celebrate the legacy of our faith and the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Take a Breath. And then let’s sing this Sunday!
