Just this week, the Reverend William Barber, along with others, reignited the Poor People’s Campaign, a grassroots movement to change this country. The first Poor People’s Campaign was started in 1967 by the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. Over the last 51 years there have been improvements in our country, no question. But we still have a long way to go in terms of equality, opportunity, and the centering of compassion and kindness.
Check out the website for the new Poor People’s Campaign.
Sign on, if you’re interested. Think about ways we can, as individuals and as a Congregation, participate in this movement to change the political, social, and cultural landscape of America. It’s one of the ways we can increase the love in this world and make life better for our neighbors and ourselves.
With commitment to change,
