An interfaith service to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. will be held Tuesday, April 4, at 7:00 pm in the sanctuary of Macedonia Baptist Church located at 1751 East 114th Street in Los Angeles. On the 50th Anniversary of Dr. King’s seminal sermon, “Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence,” faith leaders and congregations will come together to look at how far America has come since 1967.
Based on today’s issues after the election of President Trump, for many people it feels like a slow slog to justice. Dr. King warned of “racism, militarism, and gross materialism.” Those are the same concerns today as people of color are disproportionately locked up in prisons, wars are raging on multiple fronts, and greed is driving people out of homes and healthcare is unaffordable.
You are invited to join Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity and Justice Not Jails to remember Dr. King and worship together with people of multiple faiths. This is our “Time to Break Silence.” We are called now to have faith and not fear as we stand in solidarity with people who are directly affected by recent Executive Orders and increased intrusion into their lives. Let us stand together for justice and integrity.
Rev. Dr. Art Cribbs
