Rooted In Belovedness: Jesus, MLK, and You
July 13, 201912:00 pm–12:50 pm
When counteracting the evils of this world we are subject to burnout, grief, and despair. We can also become dragons while slaying dragons if we succumb to anger and bitterness. When facing the backlash, discouragement, and disillusionment we often experience in the work of social justice, self-esteem is not enough, affirmation is not enough, a strong will is not enough to get us through, to keep us going, to keep us healthy. We must find our identities from higher and a deeper places. The paths of Jesus and King were filled with joy and suffering. The conditions for happiness were often absent. Like them, we must suffer and we must dig deeper for joy.
