Monday January 19, 2015 will mark the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, a day to honor Dr. King's legacy and lifelong efforts to see a nation of freedom, justice, and racial reconciliation.
Dr. King once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent questions is: 'What are you doing for others?'" So, following in the example of Dr. King, the Office of University Ministries here at Union University is looking to provide faculty, staff and students with a tangible opportunity to serve their community on Monday, January 19th. We would be honored to partner with you in your ongoing work in our city through the coordination of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service.
If you are interested in hosting a service project please contact Melanie Taylor by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 731.661.6598 before Friday, January 16th. We look forward to serving with you in the community on Monday, January 19th!
Additionally, on that evening you are invited to attend The Diversity and Reconciliation Dialogues: College and Community hosted by Union University, in collaboration with Lane College at 6:30 p.m. at Agape Christian Fellowship Church (600 North Parkway, Jackson, TN 38305).
Union's own President, Dr. Samuel "Dub" Oliver and Dr. Logan Hampton, President of Lane College, will be engaging in an important discussion about reconciliation and the work of these two great institutions in our community. The conversation will be moderated by Dr. Daryll Coleman, Pastor of Mother Liberty CME Church. You don't want to miss it!
