The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to 
preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, 
to set at liberty those who are oppressed.
Luke 4:18

Finding Our Voices

This weekend there will be a march on our nation's capital, with simultaneous marches in several U.S. cities. Saturday's march is the youth march against gun violence. While there have been marches before, I sense a different spirit with the youth leaders of this protest.
