Love like God loves us

MLK Day 7 MLK Day 8 MLK Day 1 MLK Day 2 MLK Day 3 MLK Day 5 MLK Day 6By Thomas Sellers Jr.
The congregations of Millington’s First United Methodist Church and St. James CME Church came together Jan. 19 on the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday to celebrate his legacy.
The theme of the 2015 celebration by the churches was “We Are the World.” The fifth annual event was held at St. James with Rev. A.L. Robertson Jr. hosting and speaking. First United Pastor Ed White also took a turn at the podium to speak on the legacy of Dr. King.
The devotion part of the service included a welcome by Sylvia Jerry, greetings from Millington Mayor Terry Jones and St. James presiding Elder Willie Grandberry. The occasion was given by Charlotte Hatcher and recitation by Minister Charlotte Hatcher. Then the children of St. James wearing black and white under the direction of Marilyn Harris performed a liturgical dance to “We Are the World.”
The reflections of the day were given by a member of First United with the message of God loving all of us, so we should love everyone.
