Interfaith Action is featured in the 11 am–noon segment; view the full schedule.
Interfaith Action is thrilled to be part of the “Justice Sunday Service Around the Clock,” coordinated by the Advisory Committee on Faith and Justice for the 400 Years of African American History Commission. The event is a compelling tribute to the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the historic engagement of volunteers throughout and beyond 400 years.
Interfaith clergy from our area will be featured throughout the broadcast, as will Dr. Yohuru Williams from the University of St. Thomas (and an Interfaith Action board member). The broadcast will also include a profile of Interfaith Action’s work to build economic mobility with the assistance of congregations and faith community volunteers.
Actor Ernie Hudson will serve as the emcee, inviting the virtual participation of a diverse and distinguished lineup of civic, patriotic, historical, educational, artistic, religious, economic, and other organizational representatives from throughout the United States. Each segment of the broadcast will recognize and offer examples of HONOR, FAITH, MUSIC, ACTION, and INSPIRATION to encourage 92 acts of service to salute what would have been Dr. King’s age.
Clergy from our area who will be featured include:
- Rev. David Colby, Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)
- Pastor Steve Daniels, Jr., Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church
- Imam Makram El-Amin, Masjid AnNur
- Most Reverend Bernard A. Hebda, Archbishop, Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis
