They also came to hear the guest speaker, Anthony Thompson, former Indiana University football All-American and pastor at the Lighthouse Community Church in Bloomington.

Thompson called the celebration “a day of unity, a day of fellowship and worshipping together.”

“Unity is not uniformity,” he said. “It’s uniqueness moving toward a common goal.”
The bulk of his remarks, however, were pointed to the church members in attendance. He called Sunday “the most segregated day of the week” because American churches are often divided by race.

“We want revival in this country? Well, it starts in the house of God,” he told the crowd, which included blacks, whites and Hispanics. “What you see today — that’s what heaven is going to be like. There’s not going to be a black section over here, a white section over here, a Hispanic section over here. ... We need to be a more diverse church, a more diverse body of Christ.”

Unity, he said, begins with the admonition to love one other.

“That’s how we celebrate Dr. King,” Thompson said. “And, more importantly, that’s how we live out the mission of Jesus Christ.”
