KING DAY BLESSINGS!

The DISCIPLES ADVOCACY & WITNESS NETWORK of the Christian Church Capital Area joins many others within our region, throughout our denomination, across our nation, and around the globe to honor the birthday, life, mission, vision, and continuing challenge of one of America's strongest advocates for justice and peace: The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

PRAYER: O God of our salvation, give us the grace and strength to keep Dr. King's dream alive, and to make his vision of the Beloved Community a central part of our lives as Christians, as Americans, and as members of the world community. We make this prayer in the name of the One who gave the vision to Dr. King and to us, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
