It’s been nearly 2 years since the Saugatuck Congregational Church was devastated by fire.
Reconstruction continues, as Craig D.B. Patton’s photo from this foggy morning shows:
But yesterday afternoon at 3, the historic church’s bells joined with countless others around the nation. They rang together, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, and Rev. Martin Luther King’s ringing “I Have a Dream” speech.
The congregation has not yet returned to Saugatuck Church. But their dedication to praying for — and working for — social justice for all continues, undaunted.
It was a wonderful, musical happening through out the nation! May the dream keep growing….
