Asbury Students to Present at Unity Breakfast

Two Asbury students will represent the University with a speech at Monday’s 2013 Unity Breakfast in Lexington, Ky.

The 19th-annual Unity Breakfast is presented by the Lexington chapter of the Alpha Beta Lambda Fraternity as a commemoration of the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It will be held in the Bluegrass Ballroom at the Lexington Center. Doors open at 6:30 a.m., and tickets are available at lexingtonalpha.org.

Morgan Simpson ’15 and Gabriel Willison ’16 will speak on unity as an acronym — citing different historic events that have advanced or blocked efforts to unify — and they’ll be lighting candles for each letter.

“It is a great opportunity for Gabriel and me to let inhabitants of Lexington know what Asbury University stands for, such as our Christian values and unceasing faith in Christ and all that Christ stands for,” Simpson said. “Personally, the most respectable aspect of Martin Luther King, Jr., was the anointing of the Holy Spirit that was upon him during his life. His words portrayed the heart and nature of God, which is why they are words of love and unity. I believe many non-Christians who respect him don't realize that he was a mouthpiece of God, not just for minorities or inequality in general.”

Following the breakfast, the students will join a Unity Walk in downtown Lexington.
