Tired Feet Rested Souls

Tired Feet Rested Souls

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in his powerful Letter From Birmingham City Jail, amplifies the voice of Mother Pollard, a seventy-two-year-old woman in Montgomery, Alabama who refused to ride in segregated buses. When asked about whether she was tired, she responded, “My feet is tired, but my soul is rested.” MLK’s Letter is the inspiration for this series that, grounded in texts from the Revised Common Lectionary, will explore the concrete actions we are called to take as we continue the journey of becoming a more anti-racist, fully inclusive congregation. The work is long and our proverbial “feet” will grow tired. But with Jesus as our companion in the work of becoming beloved community, we are assured we’ll find “rest for our souls.” Join us on the journey!
