Bethel University to Honor Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Lissa Diaz

On Mon., Jan. 17, Bethel University’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council will hold an event to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The day will begin with chapel from 10-11 a.m., in the Everest-Rohrer Chapel/Auditorium, followed by guided prayer led by local pastors from 11:15 a.m.-12:15 p.m., in the Everest-Rohrer Rotunda. Also, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., a pop-in style activity will focus on prayers for unity, reconciliation and peace, and will be held in the Rotunda. During this time, the community will have the opportunity to create an artistic physical representation of their prayers by writing them on colored paper and placing them on large light-up archways, which will resemble the stained-glass windows of King, Jr.’s church, Ebenezer Baptist. Refreshments will also be available at noon.

This event is free and open to the public.
