Remembering the Message of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Please join me this Saturday evening, January 16, at 6:30 p.m. at Ohev Shalom Synagogue on 16th Street to pay tribute to the legacy of the slain Holocaust Museum security guard, Stephen Johns, and the preacher of non-violence, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. On June 10, Mr. Johns was fatally wounded outside the Holocaust Museum by a white supremacist.

The congregation from the Word of God Baptist Church (where Mr. Johns worshipped with his wife, Zakiah) will join the congregation of Ohev Shalom in prayer, song, and unity of spirit.

I will introduce Pastor John McCoy of the Word of God Baptist Church. I met Pastor McCoy on that fateful day in June inside George Washington University Hospital. We have forged a relationship to lesson the pain of intolerance and hatred.

What relationships do you need to foster to continue the message of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.?

For more information, please go to the synagogue's website:
