A few years ago, while at JesusThoughts, I worked on an Album called JesusJams. These were sermons from various speakers, edited down and placed over a backing track. We made and released several tracks, but never released one by Martin Luther King Jr. that we titled "Drum Major Instinct."
In the sermon King talks about pride and its pervasive impact on ourselves and the world as a whole. He then sets out a course for what we should seek to be proud about, first by talking about what people should say at this his own funeral. This is particularly powerful because King didn't know that just two months later he'd be killed. It is one of my favorites and today is a fitting day to release it. Take a listen below and tell me what you think.
