In terms of the unrest our nation is currently undergoing, these days remind me of 1968, especially after the deaths of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert Kennedy. Many people felt hopeless about the future without their guiding lights. Many couldn’t imagine who, or what, could save them now.
Melanie McKnight was one of them, an idealistic young woman who’d gone all-in for RFK. She watched in horror as he, and King, died, and violence exploded in inner cities across the nation.
But there was hope then, and there is hope now. My podcast this week at Anchor.fm/rebeccapricejanney speaks to that, and so does my new novel, Sweet, Sweet Spirit: One Woman’s Spiritual Journey to the Asbury College Revival. This hope exists largely because Jesus Christ, its risen source, is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
