Intuitively and instinctively we can sense that Martin Luther King Jr. is right.

But it might actually turn out to be the prior challenge with which we are really wrestling; what are the things that matter? Do we know? Have we forgotten? How can we re-member them?

These questions lie at the heart of our quest for community and justice…

If we die a little each time we fail to speak out about the things that matter…perhaps we could also say that we come alive a little each time we uncover a little more understanding of the things which truly matter…?
