BIG Dreams!

In honor of the birth of the world changer, Martin Luther King, Jr., on Monday I am posting his passionate speech he so eloquently delivered in 1963 when he deviated from his written text. 

I couldn't help but think what if Mahalia Jackson didn't shout and beckon him to tell everyone about his dream that day? We would have been denied this inspirational message. This wasn't what was on the agenda to speak about. This was a heart felt declaration of a God given dream shared with conviction and love. Those words carried so much...they were not just flippant...they came from a place of much travail, anguish, hope, faith.

Singing Praises Day 12

Today I'm singing the praises of Dave Altizer (aka Dave Maze). 

I met Dave on one of the work trips I took last year to coal mining count…
