Amazing Grace: Opinions & Options

This Friday (23rd) the movie, "Amazing Grace" premiers all over the nation.  It is a story of one's man driving passion to eradicate slavery in the British Empire.  The story is a journey of struggle and ultimately victory.  We will have a few clips about the movie during the assembly on Sunday (25th).  

When Abraham Lincoln delivered a speech to the 14th Indiana Regiment in 1865, he said, in part:  "Whenever I hear anyone arguing for slavery, I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally."  Nine years earlier, during his annual message to Congress, Lincoln asserted:  "In giving freedom to the slave we assure freedom for the free - honorable alkie in what we give and waht we preserve."  In a Birmingham jail in 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., wrote:  "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."  

Looking forward to our study on Sunday!  Jim
