Martin Luther King Jr.

Beloved Community,

“Well, I don’t know what will happen now; we’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter to me now, because I’ve been to the mountaintop. And I don’t mind. Like anybody, I would like to live a long life — longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. … I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land.” Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. –  April 3, 1968

Fifty years ago, Martin Luther King, Jr. preached these words on April 3rd, the night before he was assassinated on April 4, 1968 at Mason Temple in Memphis, Tennessee. He was an advocate for the rights, higher wages and better treatment for Black Memphis sanitation workers. This was just one of the many ways he lived out loud the Micah 6:8 passage that calls for justice, kindness and walking with God

The 2018 MLK resource includes a variety of resources that can be used for worship and education, including a litany, scripture references, quotes and reflections from Dr. King. It also has additional website and video resources that can be used with a variety of ages and groups. We encourage you to use and share these resources with your congregation and community as we celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
