We had a slightly different spin originally planned for this video as we celebrate Pentecost today. However, with the protests currently happening in Lincoln and around the nation for justice and equality the song in the video has never been more timely or appropriate.
We are Marching in the Light of God is a protest song from South Africa and was sung by those protesting against apartheid (a political system where people are divided based on race, gender, class or other such factors).
So, go forth, disciples of First Lutheran Church! Continue to march, walk, sing and dance in the Light of God!
At First Lutheran, we are a community of disciples of Jesus Christ working for the transformation of the world. Throughout our history, we have remained committed to drawing on our Lutheran (ELCA) tradition of using meaningful worship, content-rich learning and warm hospitality to care well for our congregation, the surrounding community and the world.
