We honor and celebrate the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. His vision for America and commitment to equal rights changed history for the better. Dr. King’s words and peaceful protests are still deeply valued today.
It is our prayer that the actions of all citizens reflect the dream Dr. King had for every man, woman and child – that our nation would be an ‘oasis of freedom and justice.’
Dr. King’s words are timeless and continue to stand as a foundation of goodwill for all today, for all to ‘not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.’
In light of this we reflect on the scripture found in Amos 5:24: ‘But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream.’
