CALL TO RETURN TO OUR SOULS
HYMN: We Shall Overcome (#379)
CONFESSION AND COMMITMENT
Confrontation is not bad.
Goodness is supposed to confront evil.
The best thing we can do
is be a servant of God.
It does good to stand up
and serve others.
We will no longer stand back
while the future beckons us on!
The eyes of the world
have been focused on us,
we are led to believe
racial segregation will end
in this country.
We are a fire you cannot put out.
—Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth, founder, Alabama Christian Movement for Human Rights—Co-founder with Dr Martin Luther King, Jr, Bayard Rustin (pioneering Black gay rights leader) and Rev. Dr. Ralph Abernathy—of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference(SCLC)
