“Every valley shall be filled

And every mountain and hill brought low;

The crooked places shall be made straight

And the rough ways smooth;

And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.’ ”

Luke 3:5-6 NKJV

Martin Luther King was a minister and he made a very famous speech known as the “I have a Dream” speech. A lot of it is emphasized in the media, but listen to these words from the speech that is not as often publicized:

“I have a dream today.

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together”…(he goes on to talk about the day when God’s people)…”will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, ‘Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!’”

Appeal: Our Conference works very hard to provide for the spiritual needs of all people within its territory. Some of the needs are for our children and others are outreach efforts to find God’s children. Our offering today will help with these needs.
