The Gathering - Tonight!

Every third Wednesday of the month we explore our faith at a local pub. We pray together, we converse about spiritual topics that mean something in our everyday lives, and we share a pint (a beverage of your choice). This is a place of authentic, honest, and fun community. Tonight we are meeting and we will be exploring the legacy of Doctor King.

I remember the first time I traveled to Washington D.C. and explored the Lincoln Memorial. I remember standing on the steps where Doctor King delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech and as I looked out over the Reflecting Pool I had tears in my eyes imagining what it was like to be Doctor King on August 28, 1963 calling for an end to racism. I've always been inspired by the way Doctor King's activism was rooted in his faith. Doctor King was also The Reverend King.

Tonight we will reflect on Doctor King's legacy as an activist and preacher. In preparation for tonight I encourage you to watch and listen to Doctor King's "I Have a Dream" speech.

If you haven't attended before, or if you have attended every time, I hope to see you tonight at 7:00 PM at The Dublin House on West 79th Street!
