What better anchor for our Thirty Days than a celebration of the ministry of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.!  

Whether you are working or at home today; whether you are participating in witness or in service, may this be a moment for meaningful reflection on the power of one to inspire many, and on the very notions of progress, justice, and love.

As we begin our Thirty Days immersed in the teachings and legacy of Dr. King, here are two actions you can take to honor the spirit of love that Dr. King espoused:

  1. Share a favorite Dr. King. quote on our Facebook page and on your wall.  Half the reward of this endeavor is reading through the virtual treasure chest of thoughts that Dr. King offers the world.  After all, he is considered one of the greatest orators in U.S. history.  Here are a couple of links to guide you:

  2. Watch Dr. King’s most famous speech with the young people in your life and discuss what it means to you.  Ask what they glean from his messages.

May your day be filled with love!
