Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a national holiday to commemorate the compassionate and nonviolent teachings of Dr. King, is this coming Monday.
Dr. King’s vision of a perfect tomorrow was a world free of war, a world free of discrimination and divide, and a world free of poverty where no one is condemned to be unsure where their next meal is coming from.
The only way to get to that perfect tomorrow, according to Dr. King, is through service to your fellow human.
But don’t take my word for it…
The full Drum Major Instinct Sermon.
“We call you to commemorate this Holiday by making your personal commitment to serve humanity with the vibrant spirit of unconditional love that was his greatest strength, and which empowered all of the great victories of his leadership.”
This Monday at 6 p.m. there will be a candlelight vigil at the Four Corners in Bennington. This will be followed by a procession to Oldcastle Theatre at 6:30 p.m. and will include speakers and songs. Matthew Edward, Music Director of the Second Congregational Church, will be playing piano.

All are welcome.
