Some Inspiring Preaching & Moving Service at Wright’s AME on Rev. King’s Birthday

At Wright’s African Methodist Episcopal Church, a standing-room only crowd gathered early this Monday morning to celebrate the life and legacy of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.  This was the 21st annual celebration, the Cecil County observance having been started by Commissioner Charles Givens and Robert Davis to honor the civil rights leader locally.  Rousing music from the church choir started the morning service as members of the congregation came forward to offer reflections on Dr. King’s legacy.  By the time the Rev. Brian Thomas came forward on pulpit, the enthusiastic audience was completely engaged in service and the minister’s inspiring, “Are We There Yet?”   A lively choir, great hospitality, and a powerful message from the Rev. Thomas are things we’ve learned to look forward to each year, as we pause to reflect and honor Dr. King on his birthday.
