Don't Forget the Holiday

A needed reminder for some of us, courtesy of Scot McKnight.

I just finished Undaunted Courage by Stephen Ambrose. Great story that I'll post on shortly, but there's a noteworthy quote from Thomas Jefferson in the book regarding slavery: "I tremble when I remember that God is just."
King's note that the Constitution was a promissory note to freedom was a great picture that honors the great minds of our founders, even if they didn't always live up to it. Isn't that the case for all of us to some degree, just hopefully not to the extent of depriving people their freedom.
