Walking In The Direction of Justice
Selma tells the story of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his leadership in Alabama as they fought for equal rights in a segregated south. This movie has come to us during a difficult time in our society when discussions about race tend to get swallowed up in politics and innuendo. As Christ followers, we have an obligation to walk in the direction of justice that might be unpopular and dangerous. Walking in the direction of justice was the ardent and prophetic call of Micah, and the mantle carried by Jesus in his ministry. Thus, as followers of Jesus in mission, walking in the way of justice becomes our responsibility.

- Luke 4:16-21
