Every preacher I’ve ever known has found themselves in the same situation at one point in their ministry: With the calendar racing toward Sunday, we turn to old sermons to see how someone else approached a tough topic or a challenging piece of Scripture.
Racial unity is a gospel issue and all the more urgent 50 years after Martin Luther King Jr.’s death. The anniversary of King’s tragic death marks an opportunity for Christians to reflect on the state of racial unity in the church and the culture. It creates the occasion to reflect on where Christians have been and look ahead to where we must go as we pursue racial unity in the midst of tremendous tension.<p>So, we’d love for you to join the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission and The Gospel Coalition at a special event,<a href="http://mlk50conference.com/">MLK50: Gospel Reflections from the Mountaintop</a>, taking place April 3-4, 2018, in Memphis, Tennessee. Key speakers include Matt Chandler, Jackie Hill Perry, Eric Mason, Russell Moore, John Piper, Benjamin Watson, and many others.<p>Here are six special features of the MLK50 conference that we pray will make it a unique and culture-transforming experience.<p><span style="font-size:10px;"><em>Photo courtesy: ©Thinkstock/francescoch</em></span>
