Henry Neufeld’s message on “Eric & Vincent” recalled two prophetic voices that made an impression on him. Prophets of old like Jeremiah used extreme methods like casting off their clothes to draw attention to God’s message. More than 12 years ago, Eric Hannan’s sermon at PGIMF featured an altar call to smash pieces of pottery as symbols of what needs to be discarded from our lives. Dr. Vincent Harding, as a speechwriter who adopted his wife’s pacifist Mennonite faith, gave Martin Luther King Jr. the words “A time comes when silence is betrayal.” May each of us have the courage to confront what needs to be discarded and act on the message of God.

NOTE: Henry mentioned the book Death of a King: The Real Story of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Final Year by Tavis Smiley.
