Join us for a Study on "Strength to Love: The Sermons of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr."
Sundays, July 10-31, 9:45-10:45 a.m., Fellowship Hall
Martin Luther King, Jr. was many things: movement leader, community organizer, Nobel Prize winner, poet, prophet and martyr. But Dr. King was also a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ. And even more specific than this, a Baptist minister. We’ve heard his speeches, but unless we have made efforts to do so, few of us have likely encountered his sermons, which are just as powerful, and reveal how his message of civic equality, love and reconciliation was so firmly rooted in the gospel message of these things.
Join Scott during the Sunday school hour July 10-31 as we take a closer look at some of Dr. King’s sermons. We’ll dig into his interpretive moves, discuss how he linked so powerfully the gospel message to the context of 1960s America, and how these words still challenge us today.
Our text will be a collection of his sermons entitled, Strength to Love. Copies are available on Amazon or can be purchased in the church office for $15.
