From Salem Statesman Journal,

“Several churches in the community came together Sunday to celebrate the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.About 100 to 125 people attended the free event at Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Salem for a potluck supper followed by a service. Keynote speaker was the Rev. Ronnie Brooks, pastor of To God Be Glory Ministries. The theme of this year’s event was “What Heaven Looks Like.”…Brooks charged his audience to stay committed to King’s dream. He said that while the nation has made progress, the dream has not been realized completely.He cited women’s rights and academic achievement gaps among minority students as examples of work that remains to be done. He also said the community must instill King’s dream in young people.”
