The Jesus Dr. King Knew

Erect, fatherly and confident, Dr. Lawrence Carter of Morehouse College addressed some 400 students and faculty at Fuller Seminary’s annual commemoration of Martin Luther King Day on January 18. It came in the middle of an “MLK Summit” on how King’s themes and messages apply in today’s world.

Dr. Carter is a veteran academic as well as an ordained Baptist minster. As a tenth grader he was personally recruited to attend Morehead College by Dr. King himself.

Meadowlark Lemon


The unforgettable Meadowlark Lemon who left us late in 2015 was mega-famous in a world awash in celebrity.

The basketball ace was inspired by the antics of the Harlem Globetrotters from watching newsreels at his local theatre which he frequented as a boy.

A true "up from little" American can-do roots, Meadowlark capped a second career as a minister with a Doctor of Divinity degree in 1998.

He also served as Guest Chaplain for the U.S. armed foces for many years so...thank God for the career of this extraordinary athlete and hands-on Christian.
