"Super Sunday Is Always A King Sunday" In His Words My Voice, Dr. Martin Luther King

April 9, 1967
50 Years Ago This Year
The Three Dimensions Of A Complete Life
Chicago, Illinois

More than the statue nestled on the National Mall in Washington, more than the dream spoke on that warm August afternoon on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Dr. Martin Luther wanted to be known as living a committed, complete life. He spoke of the principles of that completeness on that Spring Sunday. The words so profound are just as provocative today as there was that day. We should all adhere to his words as we struggle for reach the plateaus of equality and fairness in our society today and tomorrow. Remembering the King beyond The Dream, remembering that "our black history need never be a black mystery to our communities". Super Sunday is always a King Sunday.

 

“Darker yet may be the night, harder yet may be the fight. Just stand up for that which is right.” It seems that I can hear a voice speaking even this morning, saying to all of us, “Stand up for what is right. Stand up for what is just. Lo, I will be with you even until the end of the world.” Yes, I’ve seen the lightning flash. I’ve heard the thunder roll. I’ve felt sin breakers​ dashing, trying to conquer my soul. But I heard the voice of Jesus saying still to fight on. He promised never to leave me, never to leave me alone. No, never alone. No, never alone. He promised never to leave me, never to leave me alone. And I go on in believing that. Reach out and find the breadth of life.”
