Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. echoes the Psalmist with his question to marginalized and oppressed people, “How long?”  Dr. King echoes back, “Not long!”  On this Independence Day weekend, we lift up the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  We even lift up the ideals of our American lore and legend - that all humankind may have life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  For a world full of suffering and dread, we bring good news!  We bring a Gospel of vibrancy and abundance to a world that needs hope.
