It was so good to gather again this year with brothers and sisters from both sides of the river to celebrate the life and work of Martin Luther King Jr. CCU, as part of the Race & Unity Action Coalition, helped organize the worship service and panel discussion which took place at Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church in uptown Harrisburg on Sunday afternoon, Jan. 14. Macedonia’s choir led us in an invigorating time of singing and Pastor Rodney Smalls from Macedonia challenged us to reach out to and walk with those living in the tombs, just as Jesus did with the man in Mark 5. Following the service, the members of our panel discussed how we can have a theology of doing – working together towards the Beloved Community. We invite everyone to join us in February at a follow-up discussion event that we call a Chat & Chew, coming to share with each other steps we’ve taken to work towards racial justice. The Chat and Chew will be held at Mt. Calvary Episcopal Church on Saturday, Feb. 24 from 10 am – noon.
