Remembering Martin Luther King, Jr.: A Tolling of the Bells

Join us as we toll bells with churches across the country in remembering the life of civil rights leader, prophet and martyr Martin Luther King, Jr., on the 50th anniversary of his death.

We will gather in the garden at 7 p.m., hold five minutes of silence during the tolling of the bells at 7:05, followed by prayer.

"There's another way that Good Friday turns into Easter, and it's through us. It's through us listening to those God sends our way... to live into our baptism, to respect the dignity of every single human being."

--The Reverend Eric Long's words on Easter, on the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.
