On August 28, 2015, Glenn held Restoring Unity, an inspirational event that brought people together from across the nation. The event centered around a march down the streets of Birmingham, following the same route taken by Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1963. More than 20,000 people joined the march in 2015, estimated to be the largest march held in the city since Dr. King's in 1963.
“It’s time we show the world a model on how we can live in peace and harmony and love and righteousness,” Glenn said at Restoring Unity. “We live in such a great time, truly a remarkable time.”
Crowds flocked to Guiding Light Church just outside Birmingham, Alabama, to attend a massive community rally that featured worship music, prayer and powerful testimony. Attendees also enjoyed a premiere of Woodlawn, which tells the true story of Birmingham’s first African-American superstar, Tony Nathan, recruited by Bear Bryant.
"What we're doing is bringing a victory, a victory for the nation. A victory of love," Guiding Light Church's Bishop Jim Lowe said of the event. "That's what this is about. It's about love."
