Breaking Out of the Box: Called to Prophetic Action - Honoring the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Breaking Out of the Box: Called to Prophetic Action - Honoring the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


A recording of the time of worship and reflection held in honor of the life and teachings of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Our holiday program was led by Rev. Dr. Diane Schmitz. 

Dr. Schmitz, ordained in the UCC, is one of the SNEUCC Theologians in Residence for 2022.  Her primary focus is working with predominantly white communities to increase the awareness, knowledge, and skills needed to be effective partners in the dismantling racism efforts led by communities of color. She will engage us in dialogue, so that as individuals and congregations, we build skills for addressing racism.

Closed captioning available.
