Behind the Dream: The Making of the Speech that Transformed a Nation

Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. It brings us back to the story of how the U.S. as a nation, including the South where I grew up, had to change. Like all lasting change, it took a while. The man who continued that change and inspired for complete legal changes did so in a bold, forgiving, and peaceful spirit. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was fully a man changed by Christ early in his life. He was a human and inspiring man. He did not run from his calling or his future. I believe it was God through Christ who inspired the courageous messages of his words, actions, and reactions...surely growing through his heart and his thoughts and motivations. Faith in God is Dr. King's biographical foundation. God bless each human being in these times who seeks to walk with God and man as Dr. King sought and worked to do. Precious Lord, Take My Hand....
