Anniversary of the Death of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King, Jr., Civil Rights Leader and Martyr, 1968

Today, April 4, we mark the 51st anniversary of Dr. King's assassination. The collect for the day reads: "Almighty God, by the hand of Moses your servant you led your people out of slavery, and made them free at last: Grant that your Church, following the example of your prophet Martin Luther King, may resist oppression in the name of your love, and may strive to secure for all your children the blessed liberty of the Gospel of Jesus Christ...."
