MLK50 Conference

(Carson Weitnauer) #1

Hi friends,

I will be in Memphis, TN this week for the MLK50 Conference. There’s a free livestream available:

It is an incredible lineup of speakers. As they describe it,

Racial unity is a gospel issue and all the more urgent 50 years after Martin Luther King Jr.’s death. Join the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission and The Gospel Coalition at a special event, “MLK50: Gospel Reflections from the Mountaintop,” taking place April 3-4, 2018, in Memphis, TN. Key speakers include Matt Chandler, Jackie Hill Perry, Eric Mason, Russell Moore, John Piper, Benjamin Watson, and many others.

The 50th 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.

If you will be at the conference, reply and let me know — it’d be great to meet up! Or, if you live in the Memphis area, I would love to buy you a cup of coffee. Meeting the Connect family in person is always awesome!

Hi friends, this has been an incredible gathering. Archived videos and the live stream is here:

I particularly recommend Russell Moore and Charlie Dates opening messages. Very powerful. It has all been excellent.
