I Have A Dream

In honor of Martin Luther King Day, here is the famous "I Have A Dream" speech in its entirety. I had not realized, until I listened last night, that this, the most famous speech of our time, is so short. The whole video is only 17 minutes and it includes several minutes of singing, so the speech must be around 15 minutes long. If Dr. King could get it all said in 15 minutes, I see no reason why ordinary sermons have to drag on for half an hour or more. As has been said so often, "less is more."
