When Curtis Mayfield wrote his classic song, People Get Ready, it marked his personal response to the 1963 March on Washington. Dr. King considered the song the “Unofficial Anthem” of the Civil Rights Movement. Frequently used as a rallying song or as a song of comfort, People Get Ready pointed listeners to the time honored theology of preparation and liberation going back to the Exodus story and the Underground Railroad. It took them to the front lines of freedom around the world. What does it mean for us today to “Get Ready” for the train that is coming? Join us as we explore our own personal journey of preparation and getting ready for the faith changes we must travel in our search for authenticity and our place in this world. One hint: “You don’t need no baggage; You just get on board.”
