Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. —2 Corinthians 3:17
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery,
None but ourselves can free our minds.
Have no fear for atomic energy,
‘Cause none of them can stop the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look? Ooh!
Some say it’s just a part of it,
We’ve got to fulfill the Book.
Won’t you help to sing
These songs of freedom?
‘Cause all I ever have:
—Bob Marley, Redemption Song
Let me walk the path of freedom, O God. Let me stand in the footsteps of the prophets. Let me hunger for your spirit and your direction. Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
