This coming Sunday, January 14th, is Martin Luther King Sunday. Pastor Bledsoe will be preaching on: “Epistle From a Birmingham Jail, Memo to Washington.” This Sunday has always been about more than remembering events in the past–we at Riverside take the opportunity to speak to issues of concern for our nation and world as we live up and through Dr. King’s vision of the Beloved Community. Join us for an effervescent Sunday of music and proclamation.
If you’re going to give into something this year, give into hope. If you’re going to throw up your hands and resign yourself to something, let it be love. If you are indignant and angry (and if you’re not then you are not, as the saying goes, paying attention), then wage peace. There is a world to heal, be a healer. Enough with self-hate. Enough with ruining or being complicit in the ruin of the world. Let’s come together. Right now. ~See you Sunday
