A tradition begun two years ago has now become an ongoing celebration. The Third Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Table Fellowship will honor the fallen leader on Sunday, Jan. 20, in a transitioning inner city community that embodies King’s focus on “the least of these.”
New Life Covenant Church, located at 575 Travis St., NW, in the midst of the English Avenue neighborhood known as “The Bluff,” will honor King’s life and legacy at a breakfast reading at 11 a.m.
Nestled in the midst of a fast-changing, underserved neighborhood inhabited by poor Blacks who have lived in the community for generations and young, highly-educated Whites, New Life, focused on incarnation ministry, is directed by Pastor Timothy Rodgers, who is White and who has been lead pastor for the past decade, and Associate Pastor Catherine Gilliard, who is Black and who grew up in a similar Chicago neighborhood. The public is cordially invited to participate.
