Our speaker reminded us that Dr. Not only did he want to end segregation, he wanted to tackle two other related issues of his day: He recognized that poverty and militarism were related and that they disproportionately affected people of color.

I began to see some parallels between the two missions. Luke tells us that Jesus returned to Galilee filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. In the verses that precede our text this morning, Luke tells us that the Spirit led Jesus into the Wilderness where he was tested Luke 4: And according to Luke, Jesus was very successful.
Wherever he went the people raved about his preaching. News began to spread about him. Then he returned home to Nazareth. The home folks had heard so much about him, they wanted to hear him preach. You know that the home crowd can either be supportive or highly critical.
So, how will he be received? On the Sabbath Jesus went to the synagogue as was his practice. The leaders of the synagogue invited him to read the scriptures and say a few words.
The text for the day was a tough one. It came from Isaiah 61, which speaks of a messianic figure. In other words, the Messiah would ring in the Year of Jubilee. You will find the Year of Jubilee described in Leviticus And you shall hallow the fiftieth year and you shall proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants.
It shall be a jubilee for you: In other words, during the Year of Jubilee everyone got a clean start Leviticus When Jesus finished reading from Isaiah 61 he handed back the scroll and sat down.

What message then does Jesus have for us today? Some years back Central Woodward embraced the call to become a missional congregation. In discerning our core values seven years back, one of the values we named was that of service.
We also helped start the Metro Coalition of Congregations five years ago. A number of you have asked how we can help with the water crisis in Flint.
I already gave an offering online through Week of Compassion. You can do the same by going through Week of Compassion or through the Region.
Just make sure that you note that the money should go to the Flint Water Crisis. How often do we try to do good things without waiting on the Spirit? Ruth goes on to say: The church finds its call as it continues the ministry of Jesus, drawing on the varied gifts of its members.
None of us has all the gifts.- May 29; Constantinople falls to the Ottoman Turks. After years the Eastern Roman Empire has finally reached its end, shutting Europe's door to the East.
