“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.” —Matthew 5:9
One of the greatest peacemakers of all time was none other than Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
A Baptist minister and activist, Dr. King is best known for peacefully leading the civil rights movement with nonviolent tactics based on his deep Christian beliefs.
Y’all, this man was the boldest of the BOLD. He was full of passion, grace, Christ’s love, and justice. He carved the way for change in this nation, and he made peace where there was nothing but division.
In honor of his leadership, legacy, and faith, we take this week to remember and celebrate him.
