“Somewhere along the way, we must learn that there is nothing greater than doing something for others.”  M.L.K.

From it’s founding, The King’s Daughters and Sons has been open to and welcoming to ALL Christians regardless of race, creed, or political persuasion.  The focus of this amazing organization was that of following Christ’s teachings that He modeled for us – to love one another and to care for each other together.  The hungry must be fed, the naked clothed, the ill nurtured, the homeless sheltered, and so much more.  For 135 years, KDS members have done this very well.

Today, being Martin Luther King Day, my thoughts have been on some of his vision. He said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’ ”  Our African American members, from the beginning, started Circles to serve their communities in any way possible, making profound differences to alleviate suffering.  As time went on, projects continued and grew and Circles began to be incorporated into the Branch work.

There are still Circles today in the African American communities.  Better still, in other areas, Circles have become multicultural and work in love and harmony, doing the Lord’s work making life better for the suffering.

Our Order is open to everyone who believes in Christ as his/her  Savior.  We need more Christians of multiple cultures to not only be members. but to take on leadership roles at all levels. Think about this and share your ideas and willingness.  If we want to grow in membership, we need to meet the world where it is today.  Let’s ALL join hands and work for the Lord together!

“Use me, God.  Show me how to take who I am, who I want to be, and what I can do, and use it for a purpose greater than myself.”  M.L.K.

In His Name,

Janet Laude
International President
