“A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.” Rev. Dr. King, Jr.
In the spirit of justice and liberation, Dr. King spoke out often, powerfully, and prophetically against the Vietnam war. As a minister and activist, he used the power of the pulpit to lift people up, and to name and resist whatever might hold people back or down. Of course waging war for political or financial interests would be something he would question. God is Peace, not conflict. In this season of Resurrection where we focus on the victory of Life over death, shouldn’t we do all we can to always support what lifts up and enhances life rather than what might needlessly harm it?
Prayer: Let Life be abundant for all people! Amen.
