Bells ringing today in honor of MLK’s speech

Bells ringing today in honor of MLK’s speech

From The Washington Post article:

The final refrain of Martin Luther King Jr.’s most famous speech will echo around the world as bells from churches, schools and historical monuments “let freedom ring” in celebration of a powerful moment in civil rights history.

Organizers said sites in nearly every state will ring their bells at 3 p.m. their time Wednesday or at 3 p.m. EDT, the hour when King delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech in Washington.

King implored his audience to “let freedom ring” from the hilltops and mountains of every state in the nation.

The full article tells of commemorations throughout the world, and cites Washington National Cathedral Dean Gary Hall extensively.

Will your church be participating?

Yes Kurt my church participated. And I did personally ring a bell out here in the boondocks of North Carolina from my front deck. And, hopefully every time we do a Moral Monday in this state we sound a clear bell that we honor his courage, his dream and his love.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
