"Life's Most Persistent and Urgent Question is, 'What are you doing to serve others?'" -MLK Jr.
Last weekend was a historic one for the Greater Sacramento region. On Sunday night, believers from many churches come together at Capital Christian Center to worship the Lord, honor the legacy of MLK and be stirred again toward love and reconciliation. On Monday morning, the March for the Dream saw an incredible number of diverse participants walk together in commitment towards justice and equality. As we reflect on and are challenged by the teaching of Martin Luther King Jr. and his lifestyle of sacrifice and service towards others, let's continue to be challenged to walk towards service and reconciliation and relationship building and love. Serve United celebrates the legacy of MLK Jr. and we hope this newsletter inspires you to find the places in your lives where you are serving others.
