In His Shoes Martin Luther King Retreat focuses on "Service"

An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity. -Martin Luther King Jr.

The 6th Annual In His Shoes Martin Luther King Weekend took place on the eve of the Obama Inauguration. Under the direction of Fr. Vazken Movsesian, participants explored different dimensions of "Service" - the theme of this year's retreat.

Saturday night, the Retreat began with the showing of "Darfur Now" the acclaimed documentary about six different means to action in Darfur. Sunday, a guest from Armenia, Hasmik Babayan, who is studying in Nairobi, gave a talk to the group, followed by a Requiem Mass for the slain Civil Rights leader. A soul-food brunch followed the morning activities at the studios of Vasken Brudian in Atwater Village. Gor Mkhitarian lead the group in community singing of his new CD, "Spirit." Fr. Vazken was pleased to welcome human rights advocate and defense attorney Christopher Armen to the event.

During the last days of the election last November, Attorney Armen, Fr. Vazken and Varoujan Movsesian were out in Nevada in a get-out-to-vote campaign with the Obama people. Monday evening, the In His Shoes monthly feed to Los Angeles' Skid Row brought food and clothing to the city's indigent population. The Week came to an end with a special podcast dedicated to "Hope" - the Dream of Dr. King, finding fulfillment in the new dawn and new day.
