mlk: disappointment in the church

"I must honestly reiterate that I have been disappointed with the church. I do not say this as one of those negative critics who can always find something wrong with the church. I say this as a minister of the gospel, who loves the church; who was nurtured in its bosom; who has been sustained by its spiritual blessings and who will remain true to it as long as the cord of life shall lengthen".

Thanks for both your MLK posts. It is good to remember that God's prophets are not only 8th century Israelites, but people whose histories are intertwined with ours in more recent years.
