Who is it that is supposed to articulate the longings and aspirations of the people more than the preacher?

Rhywsut wedi ffeindio fy hun yn darllen araith olaf Martin Luther King. Heriol. Doniol. Ysbrydoledig.

Da ar ddiwrnod fel heddiw, a lled berthnasol hefyd gan fod cymaint o’r sgwrs o gwmpas y Refferendwm wedi bod ynglŷn a thrin pobl gwahanol i ni o fewn cymdeithas. Lliw, cefndir diwylliannol, cefndir economaidd, iaith, crefydd ayyb…

Dyma rai o fy hoff rannau:

“It’s a marvelous picture. Who is it that is supposed to articulate the longings and aspirations of the people more than the preacher? Somehow the preacher must have a kind of fire shut up in his bones. And whenever injustice is around he tell it. Somehow the preacher must be an Amos, and saith, “When God speaks who can but prophesy?” Again with Amos, “Let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.” Somehow the preacher must say with Jesus, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me,” and he’s anointed me to deal with the problems of the poor.””

“We don’t have to argue with anybody. We don’t have to curse and go around acting bad with our words. We don’t need any bricks and bottles. We don’t need any Molotov cocktails. We just need to go around to these stores, and to these massive industries in our country, and say, “God sent us by here, to say to you that you’re not treating his children right.”

“Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ve looked over. And I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land!

And so I’m happy, tonight.

I’m not worried about anything.

I’m not fearing any man!

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord!!”
