Don’t put down you wheatie head! A sermon to honor Congressman John Lewis.

Jul 19, 2020   ·  

John Lewis once said, “You cannot be afraid to speak up and speak out for what you believe. You have to have courage, raw courage.”  Senator Kamala Harris said, In his memory, let’s continue to speak out against injustice and have the courage to make good trouble.

It is in saying what we believe in power that will enter into a conversation, you can not keep your head down, you have to in times like these say what you believe and put your stakes in the ground.  John Lewis did that.

John Lewis said what he meant and he stood by it, marched for it, rode for it, got jailed for it and put himself out on the line for it.

We honor him by holding accountable the powers that be who could pass laws that open the way for all people to vote, saying nice things about him now that he is dead and gone, NO.  Honor him by passing the voting rights act.   We need to make sure that people can vote rather than judge them for not voting.
