Dr. King Musem

Our second Atlanta family stop was the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Museum. We visited the church where Dr. King served for 8 years as Associate Pastor, under his father Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr., the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church.

I learned he received his Ph.D. in Systematic Theology. Wow!!! We saw pictures of the other churches he served as a Baptist pastor.

But more importantly, we saw the history of one of America’s greatest men. His legacy is more than inspirational; it’s revolutionary. His committment to Christ and to his fellow man led him to go farther than any other civil rights leader.

What it would have been like to live in those days of hatred and segregation? I am so thankful for men like Dr. King and so many others who fought hard to make America a better place for ALL PEOPLE.

I am proud to call Dr. King one of my heros and Christian brothers. I can’t wait to talk with him in Heaven.
