I was in Alabama for a few days attending a friend’s wedding. Since I was flying out of Atlanta yesterday, I had a few extra hours to take a look at Atlanta.
I believe it was Tom Peters who wrote that any time he is in Atlanta he likes to visit the Ebenzer Baptist Church. That rang a bell with me, and thanks to my trusty Hertz NeverLost system, I found my way there, and discovered that in fact there is a very good Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, which includes the church, his birth home and his grave. It’s quite an experience.
One of my wishes is that over time I will be able to visit some of the important sacred and spiritual places in the world. Quite simply, this site is one of them. If you are ever in Atlanta, I thoroughly recommend a visit.
