Epiphany and MLK
We've wrapped up the holidays and the UKirk Advent and Christmas devotionals. It was a great way to stay connected over the longer breaks from classes! But as school starts again, we're missing an important holiday that we usually get to experience together. Nashville traditionally celebrates Martin Luther King, Jr. Day with several days of festivities and opportunities for learning, and the universities have always played a major part in that. We'll miss joining students as they learn and serve, but we're excited to bring some antiracist texts to our online worship each week throughout the season of Epiphany.
Epiphany is often known as the season of light... and the light has been shining on our need to continue to repent our racist histories and ongoing racist practices. Each week during Epiphany we'll be talking about a different antiracist author, alongside our usual songs, scriptures, and sacraments, beginning with Ibram X. Kendi. If you're interested in a particular text or book, let us know, and UKirk will purchase it for you.
