Dallas Coalition Update - January 2009!
What an historic time we live in! WOW! Look at the diverse group of people coming together to celebrate. AWESOME! Does every one agree? No! Does every one even understand where the other is coming from? No! Yet some very important doors to dialogue have opened.
It is a New Year with a new President in a new era in American politics and it offers new opportunities for us to get our message out! We cannot become complacent because our work is not finished. It is even more important for us to ask "Would Jesus Discriminate?" and engage people in this question. I believe that at this time more people are open to honestly explore this question.
February is Black History Month. This year it will highlight both the achievements and the shortfalls of the civil rights movement more than ever before. We have much to appreciate and learn from the leaders for racial equality. We must continue to ask ourselves the question "Would Jesus Discriminate?" and continue our personal and community work to end racism. At the same time, we raise our voices with spiritual power to say no one is free until we all are free. Indeed the Dream lives on.
As we begin Phase Two of our WJD Campaign in the DFW Metroplex, we are counting on you to be involved and help. Please read the information below and that will come in the weeks that follow. Tell your friends about our fundraising events. Help us sell tickets. As you raise funds, know that you are helping raise billboards that will raise awareness. Volunteer to work at our fundraisers. Wear your T-Shirt. There are many opportunities for you to be involved.
On behalf of the WJD-DFW Coalition, thank you for your support in 2008! Let’s continue the momentum this campaign began and join the momentum of hope and possibility that is sweeping the country this week. Let us commit to the dialogue for a better tomorrow for all of God’s children!
