John Lewis – “Well done my good and faithful servant.”

Monday, August 3rd, 2020

by: Marceline Donaldson and: Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett

When all the words have been spoken, the tributes paid, the memories shared, the pictures passed around, there is one that we believe will stand out for an eternity. That is the picture of John Lewis just days before his death standing in the middle of the Black Lives Mural.

What George Floyd accelerated opened eternity’s door to give John Lewis a view into tomorrow in the Civil Rights Movement to which he devoted his life. What one man can achieve in the space of just 80 years is an awesome tribute and example for those who work in God’s vineyards with seriousness of intent following what they are on this earth to achieve – the bringing about of God’s Kingdom.

May all of our lives, as we labor in the vineyards, produce much that follows the same example. It is so easy to be distracted and to be turned around to serve that other which oppresses us and pushes us to spend our lives looking into the mirror instead of out the window.
