King Celebration: Mighty Like A Stream

Below are questions I posed to my WLBJ Radio audience the week of January 26, 2004 in preparation for Black History Month, and after reading the book entitled Like A Mighty Stream: The March On Washington, August 28, 1963 by Patrik Henry Bass. Test your knowledge of the March On Washington by answering these questions in the comments section of this post. Hint: All of the questions are answered in an older post on the Jesus Saves Ministries blog. Mighty Like A Stream is one of five books Jesus Saves Ministries will be giving away during Black History Month beginning Friday, February 1, 2008.

Thank you for visiting this blog and telling your church family, colleagues and co-workers about Jesus Saves Ministries.

Remember, it is not Mohammad, Buddha, Confucius, nor New Age that saves. Jesus Saves!
