“We must come to see that human progress never rolls in on the wheels of inevitability.  It comes through the tireless efforts and persistent work of dedicated individuals willing to be co-workers with God, and without this hard work time itself becomes an ally of the forces of social stagnation.”

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.—final Sunday sermon, 1968

So true and well stated.  I see it all the time at Habitat—the tireless and persistent efforts of dedicated individuals working with God.  We are so blessed with that!

Then the reminders, far too many, of the places where this work isn’t happening and how much more we need to do.  We pray to God to send more tireless, dedicated and persistent workers!
