A sermon about the convergence of Dr. King’s assassination and Jesus’ resurrection preached Easter Sunday, April 4, 2021. The biblical text is Mark 16, a jarring revelation of the discovery of the empty tomb. The sermon examines ways in which Martin Luther King Jr.’s faith shaped his fight for social justice and why we are called to do the same. This video sermon includes archival images of the Civil Right movement along with contemporary photos to illustrate the sermon.
