National Day of Service

A National Day of Service to honor Dr. Martin Luther King and his legacy happened yesterday. These are some of his words to help us in our service to others:

“An individual has not begun to live until he can rise above the narrow horizons of his particular individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity. And this is one of the big problems of life, that so many people never quite get to the point of rising above self. And so they end up the tragic victims of self-centeredness. They end up the victims of distorted and disrupted personality.” He suggested that “one of the best ways to face this problem of self-centeredness is to discover some cause and some purpose, some loyalty outside of yourself and give yourself to that something.”

To read the full text of the sermon, “Conquering Self-Centeredness," google it!
