King interfaith service Stowe Vermont


A special memorial service dedicated to the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and sponsored by the Greater Stowe Interfaith Coalition will be held on Sunday, Jan. 20, at 4 p.m., at the Stowe Community Church, 137 Main St. The service is entitled "Four Faiths, Many Martyrs."

Dr. King has become an American icon but some of the other civil rights leaders have also gone on to major public positions and international acclaim. Many thousands enlisted in the cause, and made heroic contributions which were essential to the success of the movement. Most of their names have long been forgotten, but should not be: They were the martyrs, some of whom participated in the Mississippi Freedom Summer in 1964 or were at Selma, Ala., in 1965. Participants enlisted from many religious faiths, marking perhaps the first great 20th century interfaith coalition for social justice.

The service will honor several of those from different faith communities who lost their lives to serve the cause of equal civil rights for all Americans. They served the movement with Dr. King. There will also be readings and music.

Participants in the service are from the member congregations of the Coalition: the Jewish Community of Greater Stowe, St. John's Episcopal Church, The Stowe Community Church, and the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Stowe.
