In honor of today, here’s Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech …
And here’s an idea for churches (and anyone) from Church Marketing Sucks. Why not plan some time to serve your community or nearby areas on the day many people have off?
The concept “it’s not a day off, it’s a day on” honors Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day as not just a holiday break from working, but a chance to serve our communities. The idea is brilliant (thank you Congress of 1994!).
I’m sure Dr. King would have preferred any honor people were going to give him to be done in the name of serving others rather than serving ourselves.
I know there’s still so much to learn about justice and equality, but I’m so thankful for men and women like Dr. King who push against injustice and challenge society’s assumptions.
