Martin Luther King, Jr. Sunday Sermon, The Rev. Michael A. Bird: “Hold That Dream”

January 15, 2023

Preaching to our youngest parishioners, Father Bird describes gathering for an assembly with his entire school to hear a recording of Martin Luther King, Jr. give his "I Have a Dream" speech for the first time.

“As Dr. King began to speak the whole room went quiet. I watched all of the teachers and their whole bodies changed and I knew as an eight-year-old that this was big, that this was something that was going to change me and was meant to change the world.” Watch his homily from our Martin Luther King, Jr. Sunday Family Worship service. The readings are Exodus 3:7–12; Psalm 77; 1 Corinthians 1:1–9; and Luke 6:27–36.
