Fifty-six years ago, a great American, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and gave one of the most important addresses ever to grace our land. His amazing proclamation of truth came as a great beacon light of hope to millions who had lived in the shadow of injustice and bigotry for far too long. It came as a joyous sunrise, a trumpet song, that sounded the call for the end of captivity and the end to a system built on inequality and brutality.
Unity believes, like Dr. King, that every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of God shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together. All flesh will see it together!
With the power of our words and beliefs, and with the force of our actions, we will be able to face any mountain in front of us - and out of a mountain of despair, carve a cornerstone of hope. With our faith, we will be able to transform the discords of our world into beautiful harmony. With deep faith, we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that in doing so, we are made free.
Join us this Sunday as we acknowledge where we have been and celebrate where we are going.
