Did your church celebrate the life of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., today? If so, tell us how. (The post originally asked if you celebrated the feast of Dr. King. But his feast is April 4.)
At Church of the Ascension is Silver Spring, Maryland, we sang the heck out of the Lift Every Voice and Sing hymnal, and began recruiting people to contribute casseroles to a new feeding ministry. I had a chance recently to visit Central High School in Little Rock and the Lorraine Motel where Dr. King was assassinated. So much of what we do, any of us, seems inadequate in response to what he and the other martyrs of the civil rights movement did. Yet we need to do something, even if it is not enough.
