Interfaith commemoration held in memory of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
BERLIN, Md. – In Berlin, religious officials, residents and more gathered to celebrate, honor, and reflect on the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. On Monday officials with the Congregations United for Reconciliation and Equality also known as CURE, held a prayers for justice, peace, and equality sermon in honor of the holiday. Officials from all denominations and backgrounds attended the ceremony to show just how important it is to accept and celebrate one another despite each others differences. And they say tonight’s event was a perfect way to honor MLK’s dream.
“He had a vision of a works redeemed that was informed by his deep faith and I hope that inspired by his words and moved by the music, we will see that vision and will be able to make a reality in our world,” said Reverend for the t. Paul’s by-the-Sea Episcopal Church, Matthew D’Amario.
Officials add that this was the first time all religious officials got together to celebrate the holiday, and they expect to hold more events like this on Martin Luther King Day in the future.
