About twenty students of Hopkinsville Community College gathered to learn more about Martin Luther King, Jr. Tuesday afternoon.
William Ferrell, Associate Minister at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church in Cadiz says Dr. King had a multitude of titles concerning his civil rights movement, but most importantly he was a Christian pastor.
He adds King wrote in his biography about a threefold plea concerning preachers today: one about the preacher, one about the people, and one about the process.
Ferrell notes that preaching should connect with the concerns of the people.
Preaching is also a dual process, arresting souls and affecting societies.
Ferrell spoke on information collected during a 2006 interview with Kim Lawton of PBS of Dr. Lewis Baldwin from Vanderbilt University. Following his presentation, Ferell answered a few questions from audience members that ranged from how as a pastor he leads people to love their enemies to if he has ever doubted his faith.
