It happened on Sunday morning, September 15, 1963. To my own shame, I did not know that it was less than a month after the March on Washington and the legendary “I Have a Dream” speech when a bomb exploded at the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama killing four children. Ironically? No, providentially, the sermon prepared for that day was “A Love that Forgives.”
On this, another significant 50th Anniversary of a civil rights milestone, use this opportunity to be informed of this critical era in American history. I urge you to read Wringing Good Out of Evil by Eric Metaxas and While the World Watched by Timothy George.
