On the Anniversary of a Great Loss

Thanks to Larry James for the reminder of this great quote that may end up in my Sunday sermon based on the gospel lection of John 11.  It sounds to me that Jesus says the same at Lazarus grave.

 

When our days become dreary with low hovering clouds of despair, and when our nights become darker than a thousand midnights, let us remember there is a creative force in this universe, working to pull down the gigantic mountains of evil, a power that is able to make a way out of no way and transform dark yesterdays into bright tomorrows. Let us realize the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice.

 

Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.
