Bo January 18, 2018

During this week in January when we remember the life and legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. local clergy are asked to speak on the subject. Therefore, my sermon tomorrow night will be on the topic of “I May Not Get to the Promised Land,” a paraphrase of words used by King in his last speech, the night before he was assassinated in 1968. That night in Memphis, King stated that if he could live in any age, he would “take (his) mental flight by Egypt, through or rather across the Red Sea, through the wilderness on and toward the promised land.” (April 3, 1968) Later in the speech, he intimates that his death his near, prophesying: “I may not get there with you.” By coincidence, we read the beginning of the moment that King wanted to relive by time travel in Torah portion Bo: “That very day Adonai freed the Israelites from the land of Egypt, troop by troop.” (Ex 12:51)
