Students and faculty at Arizona Christian University recently lived out Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream of different races working, praying and struggling together to live up to the nation’s highest ideals.
ACU president Len Munsil told the roughly 200 people gathered Friday for the unity walk and prayer meeting that the event came about through the initiative of students who approached him to talk about the current racial tensions in the country and how to best address them as a student body.
“We had an amazing time together and it just was so obvious, I think, for those of us that were in the room, that God is doing something here that is unique and special,” Munsil said.
“And we have the ability here at Arizona Christian University to do things that really, really matter. We know that the fervent, effectual prayer of a righteous people avails much,” he added, referencing a well-known passage from the Bible’s book
