Racial Justice Ministry

The mission of the Racial Justice Ministry is to transform hearts, minds and lives so racial justice becomes firmly planted in our communities.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Letter from a Birmingham Jail

In his “Letter from Birmingham Jail”, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., in 1963 addresses clergy who called his activities “unwise and untimely”. He asks if those of us not suffering the pain of racial injustice understand what it means to be told to wait for justice. How much of what Dr. King wrote from a jail cell, particularly to the white church, is relevant today? The mission of the Racial Justice Ministry is to transform hearts, minds and lives so racial justice becomes firmly planted in our communities. Click the image above to listen to his letter—follow along with the text below — and prayerfully consider what he has to say to us today.
