Selma - The Movie and "Eyes on the Prize"

Kim and I plan to see Selma today, and when I'm able I'll offer a review of it. However good the movie turns out to be (or not), PBS's classic series "Eyes on the Prize" is surely better. The video below is long, a little less than an hour, but it's worth the time. In fact, all six episodes are worth the time. May the Lord help us to strike the proper balance between a genuine love for Him, a genuine love for truth, and a genuine love for those who are unjustly suffering in our society. As Martin Luther King Jr. wrote in his classic Pilgrimage to Non-Violence, "Any religion that professes to be concerned about the souls of men and is not concerned about the slums that damn them, the economic conditions that strangle them and the social conditions that cripple them is a spiritually moribund religion awaiting burial."
