MLK Jr. Day: Not a Myth but a Man

Please join us as we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day. We will reflect on the significance of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s influence, as well as ways in which we can learn from and live out his legacy.

Martin Luther King, Jr. has taken on almost mythical status, and for good reason. But more than a myth, King was a man—a human being with strengths, weaknesses, flaws, and gifts. Join the Rev. Kenneth Wheeler for an in-depth exploration of how King’s particular human context both strengthens his witness and reveals a God who uses imperfect people to accomplish greatness.
