a prayer/wish for all of us

May we not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.  May we use the gifts we have received and pass on the love that has been given to us. [Gunilla Norris “Lectio Divina A Steadying Way’]

Psalm 23 – for busy people

Psalm 23 for Busy People

by Toki Miyashina

The Lord is my pace-setter, I shall not rush;

he makes me stop and rest for quiet intervals,

he provides me with images of stillness,

which restore my serenity.

He leads me in the way of efficiency,

through calmness of mind,

and his guidance is peace.

Even though I have a great many things

to accomplish each day.

I will not fret, for his presence is here.

his timelessness, his all-importance

will keep me in balance.

He prepares refreshment and renewal

in the midst of activity,

by anointing my mind with his oils of tranquility

my cup of joyous energy overflows.

Surely harmony and effectiveness shall be

the fruits of my hours

and I shall walk in the pace of my Lord,

and dwell in his house for ever.

thought for today

Belief remains a bounce, faith a leap.

Faith is taking the first step . . .

Faith is taking the first step,

even when you don’t see the whole staircase.

– Martin Luther King

There are several events in Seguin during this weekend commemorating the legacy of Martin Luther King.  Yesterday evening was the Historical Fashion Show at TLU’s Wupperman Little Theater.  A Taste of Soul – with delicious tastings! – at the Coliseum today.  Tonight will be a Celebration and Dinner with speaker Frank Jackson of Prairie View A&M and gospel recording artist Cristal Smith.

Sunday at 7:00 p.m. there is  a concert at TLU’s Jackson Auditorium (in Praise of Popular Song with Bett Butler) and on the 18th, Rev. Purnell Jr. of Wesley Harper UMC will speak in Central Park in downtown Seguin.  The TLU Shabach Gospel Choir will sing at Central Park  and on Monday, the symbolic march from Central Park to TLU’s Jackson auditorium with guest speaker  Art Hall, president and CEO of Artah Holdings, Inc.

We’ve been attending some (not all) of these events since we moved to Seguin (well – perhaps about a year after moving here) and there is greater participation from Seguinites each year.  The Planning Committee for this weekend does a marvelous job of coordinating, planning, and executing the varied events.

Martin Luther King raised the consciousness of civil rights and his legacy speaks to all of us.

Mission Statement of the Committee

The mission of the Martin Luther King Committee shall be to promote the life and struggle of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The committee shall through celebration demonstrate the struggle for equality and justice. The M.L.K. committee shall strive to keep Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s dream  for  Equality alive in the Seguin Area.
