Resources for Human Relations Day / Martin Luther King, Jr., Day

Article MLK2022

The verse, "I'm gonna' treat everybody right – until I die," from the traditional spiritual "I Will Trust in the Lord" is slowly becoming a worldwide standard for how the human family lives together. Martin Luther King, Jr., Day has become Human Relations Day on the United Methodist Special Days Calendar. This allows us to step back from the historical person, Martin Luther King, Jr., just enough to embrace the sweeping worldwide reforms initiated by Dr. King and others during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s. It also calls us to remember two things: that one person can make a tremendous difference and that when we venture forth in the name of God's justice, we will not have to stand alone for very long. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. has truly taken his place in history as a drum major for justice, leading a parade of like-minded people on several continents who continue the work begun under his leadership nearly half a century ago.
