Food for Thought. . .
The following is from the Rev. Drew Williams at Trinity Church in Greenwich. It expresses well the experience of the recent Building One Community Breakfast and is well worth the read. .
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. famously preached a sermon entitled “The American Dream” in which he sought to remind us: “You see, the founding fathers were really influenced by the Bible. The whole concept of imago dei, as is expressed in Latin, the ‘image of God,’ is the idea that all men have something within them that God injected… that every man has a capacity to have fellowship with God. And this gives him a uniqueness, it gives him worth, it gives him dignity. And we must never forget this as a nation: there are no gradations in the image of God. Every man from a treble white to a bass black is significant on God’s keyboard, precisely because every man is made in the image of God. One day we will learn that. We will know one day that God made us to live together as brothers and to respect the dignity and worth of every man.”
