MLK Jr. Day is almost here–is your church website ready? Here are some ideas to get you started.
- Acknowledge the day with links on your home page to MLK documents & audio files and the King Center (note: audio automatically kicks in); ResourceShelf has a thorough list.
- Run a provocative poll, such as When will the USA reach full racial equality? Choices could be:
– We’re pretty much already there.
– In another generation.
– In 50 years.
– In 100 years.
– Probably never.
- Highlight your pastor’s previous homilies/sermons related to Martin Luther King, Jr. or civil rights. At my parish, we’re highlighting “Hear and Heed the Call,” “I Will Not Be Quiet” and “No Limits to Equality.”
- Recap or link to any parish and local events commemorating the holiday.
Make it a day on, not a day off, and let us know what you did.
