Martin Luther King Jr. Day

1/12/21

Dr. King’s birthday is Friday January 15.  We are putting out a call.  Let’s honor his memory and use his day to heal this nation.  Let’s fast and fall silent, listening for the still small voice of that which remains great within us.  Let’s gather and walk, in every city and town, silently. Let’s reflect on our own transgressions before our passions push this nation, and our democracy, over the edge.
