Speakers at New Bethel honor Dr. King

YOUNGSTOWN

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wanted to usher in what he called the “Beloved Community” here on Earth, the main speaker in a celebration of King’s life said today.

The Rev. Gena Thornton, lead pastor at Grace AME Church in Warren, told the crowd at New Bethel Baptist Church on Youngstown’s South Side that we are empowered to bring that community here because God gave us the power to govern the Earth and ourselves when He created Earth.

“The power is in you,” Rev. Thornton said. “Get up and find God — whatever name you call God — find God and let him carry you to a place of humanity.”

New Bethel played host to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Celebration in honor of the holiday Monday celebrating King’s birth.
