Living Christ - MLK

One of the most impressive things about MLK to me was how in his public life, he lived Christ. To return violence with violence is the norm, and certainly feels a natural reaction. Throughout the history of Man, the oppressed stand up and fight back with violence, and that violence is eventually repaid. But Christ shows us a different way - a way that very few public leaders seem to understand. It is a shame that men who live Christ seem to come to such a violent end (Ghandi is another example, although a Buddhist, certainly followed from Christ's example). Perhaps that is just the way of this broken world. MLK reminds us with his life, and his example, the importance of following Christ, no matter what this world may do to us.

Oh yeah, I have a blog!

Actually, it's not that I forgot it was here ... it's just ... well, many excuses why I haven't posted a blog since May 2005 ....

I actually told myself that I'd start blogging again with the new year. Not quite two weeks behind schedule, I guess. So many things to talk about, I've started many blogs in the 20 months since my last post. But each time, I've later "abandoned my post" as it were.
