Bishop T.D. Jakes Honors Martin Luther King and Golden Anniversary of March on Washington
The Potter's House church, led by Bishop T.D. Jakes, is donating $10,000 to the National Action Network in honor of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.
"It is a tremendous privilege to contribute to the National Action Network and to the legacy of an inspiring leader and powerful movement that changed the course of history," said Bishop T.D. Jakes. "Today, I honor Dr. Martin Luther King, who embodied the spirit of Jesus when he challenged us to elevate ourselves and respond to physical force with soul force. His March on Washington was a world-changing gathering. It reminded those in Washington that America’s dream is that all men were created equal. He encouraged all of us to stand for justice and to continue to strive for all that is good. It is because of Dr. King and his historic march fifty years ago that we are now able to hold such a gathering as MegaFest in Dallas next week - where tens of thousands of people of all colors will unite and celebrate their faith, their families and their belief that tomorrow can be better than today. While I long to be with the National Action Network to celebrate this legacy, how appropriate it is that we gather together at MegaFest during this historic anniversary. What a blessing it is to have this opportunity to bring so many people together in a way that embodies the spirit of Dr. King's message and the work of the National Action Network."
