This year many commemorations of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s life and legacy are available to participate in online.
The SALT project has made available to congregations a free film for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, pulling together evocative moments of archival footage from the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
From their webpage:
No doubt Dr. King would want us to remember and celebrate all the people who made the march possible —inspiring us more than half a century later to keep working, marching, and fighting for jobs, freedom, equal rights, liberation, inclusivity, and a world in which Black lives truly matter.
You can download the video here and share it far and wide: in worship, on social media, on your website, with your family and friends. Let freedom ring!
Events Hosted by Churches Online
St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church has a schedule of events that spans the weekend.
