Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King JR


Hope Fellowship and our nation celebrate and honor a man of bravery,

purpose, and vision. Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was an instrumental face

and voice during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. He advocated for change

during times of segregation, racial violence, and the unfair laws, practices, and

mistreatment of minorities. His activism occurred in a climate of aggression and

violence for those who looked like him, yet he preached the message of love, using

his platform to call for a non-violent response to harsh treatment. In one of his many

sermons, “Where Do We Go from Here,” Dr. King states, “I have also decided to stick

with love, for I know that love is ultimately the only answer to mankind’s problems.”

In Matthew 22, Jesus instructs us that the greatest of the

commandments is to “love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul,

and with all thy mind,” and second, “to love thy neighbor as thyself.” We at Hope

Fellowship believe that Christ came to give his life as a ransom for all human beings.

We dedicate ourselves to serving our community and showing the love of Christ, no

matter what our differences may be. Why? Because Jesus loves us all and calls for us

to love one another. Through His divine love, we are saved, redeemed, and

transformed. Today and every day, let us remember to live according to God’s

principle of loving our neighbor as we continue to press forward to fulfill the dream of

Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
