As a young man growing up, John Franklin Lyde Jr., found inspiration in the figure of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. On Sunday, Lyde brought some of that inspiration to his own pulpit.
"People have forgotten.They call him 'Martin Luther,' or 'Doctor King.' But he was a pastor of a Baptist church,'' Lyde told his congregation at Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church in Albany.
Throughout the Capital Region on Sunday, people remembered King, the late civil rights leader whose birthday is celebrated as a national holiday today.Those old enough to have been personally influenced by King sought to pass on their memories to younger people who know only his legacy.
In King's honor, people of all ages and backgrounds took part in a walk in Schenectady and sang spiritual songs in churches throughout the Capital Region.They listened to sermons and speeches centered around King's vision of love, interracial harmony and nonviolence.
The state's MLK Holiday Memorial Observance kicks off at 8 a.m. this morning at the Empire State Plaza with a musical prelude followed by a memorial service and noon march from downtown to the King Monument in Lincoln Park.
In his Sunday morning sermon in Albany, Lyde reminded his congregation, "We are celebrating his contributions to African-Americans.
In those days, Lyde reminded the nearly full church, if a child acted up, someone would correct them and when they got home, a parent would "correct them, too.And you know what I mean about correcting.Children understood the meaning of extended family, people helped out each other.''
Today, "we are under siege from our own offspring.Not only are children different, but so are their parents.'' Lyde said."Today, you would get cussed out (by the parent) for saying something to a child.''
After the service, Lyde said, "I was a young boy growing up during that time.I remember.'' Today, he finds himself trying to bring social change and considers himself "an educational preacher.''
He also likened King to Jesus.The main body of his sermon -- "Moving from disgrace to dignity'' -- related the story of Legion, the hurt and lost soul who met Jesus, to today.
It was the same sermon Lyde, who has been at the Albany church for nine months, brought to a Martin Luther King celebration at Christ Church United Methodist in Troy, later in the day.
