That’s Andrew Goodman, above. Fifty-six years ago this past Sunday (Father’s Day June 21, 1964) under a plan hatched by the Ku Klux Klan with assistance from law enforcement officials, he and two other young men, part of a massive black voter registration effort, were murdered by a mob on a lonesome road in rural Neshoba County in the heat of a summer night.

  • We live in a society gripped by a quasi-religious fervor and obsessed with symbols and irrational fears. 
  • The cultural revolution has come to the Ivy League.

  • DUNCAN/Spiritual discipline

  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Isaiah 40:9-11
    In verses 6-8, the Lord directed us to focus on men, their power and righteousness. He wants us to see that there is a reality beyond what we can see in external appearances.
