Dear People of Hope,

This weekend when the community celebrates Dr. Martin Luther King Jr as a great civic leader, we in the church also remember that he was a preacher and a pastor, inspired by his faith in Jesus.  There are several opportunities to listen and pray together and with our wider community.

1) This morning in worship we heard a portion of the Reverend King's final Sunday Sermon, "Remaining Awake Through a Great Revolution."  You can watch the full sermon here:

2) This morning we shared a special prayer for this inauguration week from Bishop Elizabeth Eaton, presiding bishop of the ELCA.  You can re-read and continue to pray this prayer, found here:

3) This afternoon at 4pm our synod releases a public reading of Rev. King's "Letter From a Birmingham Jail," read aloud by Lutherans who are African American.  You can watch this reading anytime after 4pm today/Sunday here:
or here:

4) Monday at 4pm, we'll gather to watch this reading together and discuss what we hear.  Katie E and Matthew S will lead this conversation.  Join us on zoom with this information:
