Even in inclement weather, The corridors at Maumee Presbyterian Church gleaned the sounds of Negro spirituals in honor of the observance of Dr. MARTIN LUTHER King Jr. Day, as many pressed to enter the doors and pay homage to Dr. King.
The union of churches, who set aside this time to celebrate the life of Dr. King, brought African American and Caucasian brothers and sisters together to breakdown the barriers as well as to show the willingness to bridge gaps between cultures in a common cause.
The service was upbeat and filled with anticipation that at the end of the day the mission would be accomplished. Rev. Lee Williams, Host, and Pastor of the Searchlite Community Baptist Church, ensured that the gathering of people of all cultures was what he believes that Dr. MARTIN LUTHER King, Jr. was all about and would have been proud to overlook the audience with a nod of approval. It is no doubt in Pastor WILLIAMS mind, that this day of celebration had distinct meaning to the significance of Dr. King's life.
