Special Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Service in #Maryland #md #princegeorges

January 10, 2012

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is a very important time for most Unitarian Universalists due to our history in civil rights, going back to the abolition movement and up to anti-racism. One of our ministers, Rev. James Reeb, died in Selma in 1965when he attended a march with Dr. King as did Viola Liuzzo, a lay activist. Members of Davies Memorial in Camp Spring attended his famous “I Have a Dream” speech in Washington, DC, and some of them are still with us.

This Sun., we will have a service with our minister plus four lay members. The lay members are volunteers who attend ADORE, but the ones who volunteers just happen to be two men (one African American and one white), and two women (one African American and one white). They’re also diverse in their perspectives in many ways, including age, religious background, birth places, careers, and amount of time as Unitarian Universalists, besides other ways. They’ll be giving their own perspective on how far we’ve come and where we still have to go to reach the dream.

Please join us this coming Sun., Jan. 15 at 10:30 AM and spread the word.
