Idea of the Week

January 18, 2010

“And so Jesus gave us a new norm of greatness. If you want to be important — wonderful. If you want to be recognized — wonderful. If you want to be great — wonderful. But recognize that he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. That’s a new definition of greatness.”

– Martin Luther King, Jr., the “Drum Major Instinct” sermon

I had something different in mind – up here in balmy Toronto, on a day that had more than a few distractions, it really hadn’t sunk in that today was an American holiday.

Later in the evening, while trying to chill out a bit, I turned on an NPR jazz station and this was what they were playing. And it seemed somehow appropriate, so there it is.
