Presented by the Cathedral College of Faith & Culture, Take On Lent is a series of special programming that encourages us to “take on” rather than “give up” something for Lent!

Course Series: “A Call To Action: Dr. King from the Canterbury Pulpit”

Dr. King preached his final Sunday Sermon at the Washington National Cathedral on March 31, 1968, entitled, “Remaining Awake Through a Great Revolution.” Its importance and its themes were a call to the Cathedral and the Nation to address the challenges of the day.

The Rev. Canon Leonard L. Hamlin, Sr. facilitates this class, focusing on a review of the sermon and discussion of its themes will allow for reflection and a renewed call to action to live out our faith in these challenging times. Why does it seem he could preach that sermon today? The sermon will be discussed over three sessions guided by Dr. King’s three major points of action.


Sunday, March 5, 12, and 26 • 1 pm
