Obama - MLK's birthday

    WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama and his family have
celebrated Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday at a Sunday morning
worship service.
     Obama, his wife, Michelle, and daughters Sasha and Malia sat in
the second row of Washington's historic Zion Baptist Church, which
was founded during the Civil War by African Americans who moved to
Washington from the slave state of Virginia.
     The church bulletin featured a photo of King on the steps of the
Lincoln Memorial and the words "I Have a Dream." A deacon
welcomed the first family and read a passage from King's "Letter
from a Birmingham Jail."
     The sermon by the Rev. Keith Byrd came from the Sermon on the
Mount, where Jesus urges his followers to be the salt of the earth.
     Byrd urged the congregation to preserve America's morals like
salt amid political, social and economic turmoil.
     He told worshippers they can conquer any challenge if they have
the love of God in their hearts.
