Rev. Dr Martin Luther King Day: A Reflection

By Becky Gonzalez, Director of Global Outreach

Earlier this month we Celebrated Martin Luther King Day. How did you celebrate?

The thing that I am in awe of this month was that he is the REVEREND Dr. Martin Luther King and that we have a national holiday set aside for him, and the movement he was a part of. I wonder if people reflect on that he was a Christian, who constantly shared the message of the Good News of the Gospel every opportunity he had. He was following his convictions as a follower of Christ.

Thank you Dr. King. I enjoyed my day off. More than that, I appreciate that he was the fact that I had the opportunity of hearing his wise and articulate words this week from a sermon entitled Love in Action, drawing on how the truth of this verse is revealed in race relation of his time and continue to ring through today.
