By the Content of Character — January 22, 2023

The Rev. Jenny Peek will reflect on Martin Luther King. When the Rev. King dreamt his children would be judged not for the color of their skin but by the content of their character, he was visualizing a path not of color blindness but of human wholeness. Have you ever said or thought, “I don’t see color?” Or its sibling sentiments of tolerance, “I don’t care who you love,” “It doesn’t matter to me if you come from rags or riches.” Such expressions arrest King’s vision, imprisoning the potential in one fell swoop of dismissal.

Join us this Sunday, as our visiting minister Rev. Jenny Peek joins us via Zoom to share her message on the value and necessity of perceiving wholeness in order to love King’s vision into full being.
