Honoring Martyr Jonathan Daniels @ Christ Church, Wed, Aug 19, 7:00-8:30pm
Join us as we gather together to watch Here am I, Send Me: Story of Jonathan Daniels and honor the powerful life and actions of Jonathan Daniels. The year 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the martyrdom of Jonathan Daniels, who was assassinated on August 20, 1965 at the height of the Civil Rights movement in Hayneville, AL. Jonathan grew up in Keene, New Hampshire where he worshiped at St. James Episcopal Church and was a seminarian at the Episcopal Theological School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He went south answering the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s call for clergy to help register black voters. We will show the 50 minute documentary in Harris Hall where desserts and coffee will be provided.
