read at the august 25, 2013 service of the church at mable peabody’s:

 

fifty years ago…

the prophetic words rang out

because from a few rows back

one woman had the courage to shout

mahalia jackson declared “tell them about the dream martin”

 

justice was spoken like a song

and the people were given new courage to press on

the generation that heard the words started the race

and we are here to keep the faith

 

in this space the courage to love is undoubtedly here

because we are dedicated to pushing past fear

indeed

the beloved community might be near

because of efforts to make the world more queer

 

we are the dream

 

amen
