A quick re-read for MLK day. King begins with reflections on Psalm 8 and human dignity. Before talking about the dimensions of the complete life (reflecting on the New Jerusalem in Revelation). The complete life, according to King, includes our personal calling, our love for humanity, and our love for God. Most of us settle for the first two, but life is incomplete without the third.

Two sermons together on what it is to be a man. Simple and straightforward. Truth that we need reminded of on a daily basis. ( )

I just can't enough of the words of Martin Luther King, Jr. These two meditations read like eloquent dvar torahs. Mind-prying stuff. His moral clarity is profound. Now that I've gotten a taste of many of his speeches and small books, it's on to the big ones for full absorption. ( )
