The Rev. Dr. David Latimore, Director of the Betsey Stockton Center for Black Church Studies at Princeton Theological Seminary, to preach for annual Multifaith Service (this year again online) to Honor the Legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at 7 PM on Monday, January 17
The Rev. Dr. David Latimore, Director of the Betsey Stockton Center for Black Church Studies at Princeton Theological Seminary, will be the preacher for the annual Multifaith Service honoring the legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. starting at 7:00 PM on Monday, January 17. The Rev. Dr. Latimore previously served four Baptist churches and taught at Belmont University.
Due to the upsurge in the pandemic, this years’ Service will again be online, and the information for attending can be found under Upcoming Events at peacecoalition.org. The Service will also include faith leaders and music from a wide range of faith traditions, in addition to Dr. Latimore, and is expected to end by 8:30.
The Service has been taking place annually for over three decades and is co-sponsored by the Princeton Clergy Association and the Princeton-based Coalition for Peace Action. It has been hosted live at various Houses of Worship in Princeton prior to the 2021 Service.
Among the faith traditions represented by the faith leaders co-leading the Service are AME, Baha’i, Baptist, Christian Science, Jewish, Muslim, Presbyterian, and United Church of Christ.
“We are thrilled to have such a prominent faith leader as our preacher this year, as well a diverse group of faiths represented in the leadership of the Service ever for this years’ Service on the official Holiday for Dr. King’s birthday. We will also have powerful and spiritually uplifting music. We strongly encourage interested people from all backgrounds to visit peacecoalition.org to find the information to participate in this major annual event,” said the Rev. Robert Moore.
Rev. Moore is Executive Director of the Coalition for Peace Action and Treasurer of the Princeton Clergy Association. He has been serving as Chair of the Planning Committee for the Annual MLK Service since late 2017.
