Needed: Fools!

For Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, this rendition of 'Fool on the Hill' from Paul McCartney's 1989-90 world tour.

To a world mired in death, the gospel message of new and everlasting life through faith in Jesus Christ, the belief that animated King's vision, is foolishness.

To a world mired in hate and self-interest, King's vision of "the beloved community" in which all God's children participate is threatening foolishness.

But, as a fool for Christ, I still believe in King's dream.

We need that dream and we need Jesus Christ now, today, more than ever!
