San Antonio's 2015 MLK Interfaith Service
About 300 people gathered to worship together and remember the words, deeds, and spirit of the late Dr. Martin Luther King at the annual Interfaith Service, held at Temple Beth-El on Sunday, January 19. The afternoon was full of music, dance, and inspirational speech, highlighted by Rev. Otis Mitchell's channeling of King and his famous "I Have A Dream" speech. The Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim, Sikh, and Hindu faiths were all represented at the service.
