Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in the United States. To celebrate this important day we are sharing a sermon presented by Rev. Wil Gafney, PhD, an Episcopal priest.
“Dr. King was a great man. And he was a flawed man. And God used him. But he wasn’t out there alone. Dr. King was surrounded by Dorothy Height, Diane Nash, Amelia Boynton, Fannie Lou Hamer and more the way Moses was surrounded by Yocheved, Shifra, Puah, Miriam and Pharaoh’s daughter. Dr. King also had the sage counsel of his friend Bayard Rustin, an openly gay black man.”
