I’m very excited that CIL will be hosting Hendersonville’s 3rd Annual MLK Celebration of Unity on Sunday, January 19th at 6:00 p.m. We are joining with Community Church to provide this church service and event to the city.
My good friend Doug Varnado, pastor of Community Church, is the visionary behind this event. He recognized that despite recognitions of MLK Day in Nashville and Gallatin, Hendersonville had no comparable event. The purpose of this service is to celebrate God’s plan for racial unity, and to remember the countless sacrifices of Christians, pastors and churches during the Civil Rights movement of the 1950’s and 1960’s.
I strongly encourage citizens of Hendersonville and surrounding communities to make an effort to attend this important service. Your physical presence at this event will make a statement of your belief in racial unity.
