Glory Sighting: Martin Luther King, Jr. Service

posted on February 12

by Rev. Robert Howell

On October 24th, 2018, shots were fired, killing two persons at a local neighborhood Kroger store in the Jeffersontown community of Louisville.  On January 20th, just three months later, a service of healing was offered by the local ministerial association, hosted at J-town United Methodist Church.  The backdrop for this event was a Martin Luther King, Jr. worship celebration.  

Despite chilling temperatures outside, a spirit of comfort and peace was felt inside as people from all walks of life gathered with a desire to find our own way forward (to borrow the phrase).  More experiences such as this are being planned as we carry on through the months ahead.  Only God could bring something good from such a horrific tragedy as the senseless killing that occurred that day last fall.
