"Martin Luther King Changed My Life"

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” -- Martin Luther King, Jr.
Martin Luther King Sunday is one of the most important Sundays of the All Saints church year. It is a day when in worship, in education, and in calls to action we focus on following Dr. King's example of living a life aligned with God's values of love, justice, peace and compassion.

On  Sunday, January 16th, we welcome to the Rector's Forum four of the most exemplary leaders at All Saints Church to mark MLK Sunday by sharing how the life, message, and values of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's dream. have shaped their professional lives and how they live those values daily.

Greg Adams, Joe Henry, Zelda Kennedy, and Huey Merchant – a health care professional, a song writer/performer/producer, a priest, and a psychiatrist – live very different professional lives. Thousands of people admire and benefit from the work of this quartet. Each of these speakers has been shaped in his or her own way by Dr. King’s call to justice and peace and by Dr. King’s articulation that every human being lives in a web of mutuality and interconnectivity. All of them worship at All Saints.

Come be inspired by these four followers of Dr. King who will inspire you to align your life more to the contours of this contemporary prophet. Joe Henry will perform and join the others in telling stories about the impact of Dr. King. Bring friends at 10:15 a.m. to the Rector’s Forum.

If you cannot join us at church, watch the video stream live on Sunday morning.
