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.

In the audio excerpt above, Nettie Hinton introduces the guest speakers for the program. You'll then hear Imam Abdur-Rahimm Muhammad read an original poem written for the occasion, Minako Shibazaki delivers a Buddhist chant, Gloria Ray offers some of her reflections on Dr. King's legacy and reads an excerpt of his address to Oberlin College, and finally, Hardeep Singh Raina offers a Sikh Chant for the occasion.

Below, hear the Levitical Gospel Chorale's opening hymn.
