'Long Live the Dream' celebrates King's legacy


A booklet of reflections on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s life and legacy prepared by the Mississippi Conference is now available.

The conference Commission on Religion and Race proposed the book as a way to mark the 40th anniversary of King's death. He was assassinated April 4, 1968, in Memphis.

Titled "Long Live the Dream," the book contains 27 personal reflections from clergy and laypeople in the Mississippi Conference.

Copies will be mailed to active clergy and the lay members of Annual Conference. Additional copies are available for $1 each plus shipping while supplies last. Contact the Office of Connectional Ministries at 601.354.0515 to place an order.
