Sunset in downtown Mobile, Alabama

As the season of Advent approaches… as I consider the message of hope, faith, peace, and love… the following words from a sermon that Howard Thurman preached on the message of the prophet Micah ask me to consider the call of God during this holy season.

“What does God require of thee, then, O son of man? To do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God.” And that perhaps is the meaning of religion. Certainly it is the meaning of the good life.” WALKING WITH GOD:
