Rev. Brian Tillman is an associate pastor at Ben Hill UMC in Atlanta, GA.

Sermon Excerpt: The movement Dr. King teaches is one of non-violence. Like Jesus’ invitation to be a grain of wheat, it’s a call to understand that our death does not lead to an absence of change, but that our willingness to die leads to a multiplying of God’s love on earth. We are called to forsake our live for the love of God in the world, for when we die, we multiply.
