The Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration on Sunday, Jan. 16 will be an inspiring time. There are adults speaking and singing, children/youth getting awards and singing, and congregational singing. It is a special tribute to one of America's significant change-makers.....and a time when people of all faiths join in making that tribute.
