As we remember the life and death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. this week, let us recommit ourselves to the work of anti-racism, which is a priority of the NC Conference.
Easter joy, love, and light to you.
As we enter into these fifty days after Easter, we give thanks for the strong light and love of God. Christ is alive. God offers us, through Christ great victory, life abundant and eternal.
Tomorrow on April 4, we remember and celebrate the life of one of God’s great servants. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis 50 years ago tomorrow. His life continues as a witness of courage and strength. He was a drum major for justice. As we remember his life, we commit ourselves anew to the ongoing work of anti-racism. We go with Dr. King to the mountain top and we look at all that has yet to be accomplished.
One of the priorities of the North Carolina Annual Conference is multicultural ministry, anti-racism, the gathering of all people into our churches and into our ministry. May the life of Dr. King in this week after Easter inspire us, challenge us, and beckon us to be God’s faithful prophets in our own time.
