This morning at Parkrose Community United Church of Christ we celebrated the life and ministry of The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a special service. Our scripture readings included Isaiah 5:1-7 and Luke 4:16-19. The sermon dealt with the overall theme of prophetic ministry and the issue of justice in contemporary theology. To illustrate one justice issue faced by the church the question of how best to educate homeless youth was raised. Should homeless students be shuffled off to separate schools or integrated into public school systems?
