NFA students and staff attended a moving prayer service in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. last week. They were reminded through prayer, song, and reflections from Campus Ministry Delegates of his legacy and the hope that inspired his philosophy to love inclusively each day. May you be reminded today and always of his courage and dream.
