    You'll like this. It is a transcript of the sermon preached at White Station CoC after the assassination of MLK and the rioting that took place after in Memphis. WS is in the heart of Memphis and one of the few Christian churches in Memphis not leaving it's original community to get a 'safer' building in the suburbs. It is a church that is also considered apostate by most nearby CoC's too. Makes me proud… 😉

    That's some powerful stuff.

    And we can deny this and deny it, but the sooner we face up to it and say “Lord, forgive us for our inactivity, for our complacency, for keeping quiet on the principles of Jesus Christ,” the sooner we can go to God on our knees and ask Him to help us. That much sooner, then, we can have the guilt off our shoulders.
