On MLK Day (January 21) I participated in Gallatin’s “MLK Unity March and Program.” It was great to see some old friends in Gallatin from my Sumner Life days.
We marched from Gallatin City Hall to Rucker Stewart Middle School, a somewhat lengthy, but enjoyable walk. Then, a program at Rucker Stewart included the dignified, but witty hosting of Bishop Umika Jones (First Baptist Winchester Street), a powerful and humble prayer from Pastor Charles Anderson (Indian Hills Baptist), and passionate songs from my friend Pastor Steve Oldham.
An excellent speech was given by Kee Bryant-McComick! Mrs. McCormick is is the assistant public defender for Sumner County, and serves in city leadership in Hendersonville. Her speech really inspired me and everyone else!
It was a privilege for citizens of all races to walk, worship and laugh together. The “dream” is alive!
