Martin Luther King Jr.’s words continue to resonate, decades later…

 “Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.”  –MLK, 1963

  “Be a bush if you can’t be a tree.   

If you can’t be a highway, just be a trail.

If you can’t be a sun, be a star.

For it isn’t by size that you win or fail.

Be the best of whatever you are.” 

—MLK speech before a group of students at Barratt Junior High School in Philadelphia, October 26, 1967

This pop star leads worship in Beverly Hills?

Seriously, Justin Bieber took a big step to use his music gifting at his church this week. For the past eight years, Bieber has attended Churchome – a church that meets on Wednesday nights in Beverly Hills and is pastored by Judah Smith. While Bieber has contributed to the worship service before, this was his first time to fully lead worship for the church.  Justin sang a few tracks, including “Reckless Love,” “Good Good Father”, “Sinking Deep”, and “Never Would Have Made It.”

After tearfully thanking his friend and pastor, Judah Smith, for leading the church, Justin  took a pause in worship and shared to the congregation “there is power in your weakness and being vulnerable…”
