Continuing The Dream In Dr. King's House

Change still has a chance in the church that changed America.

"I see this lady looking over here saying, is that the pastor?"

At this outreach program, Raphael Warnock is senior pastor at Atlanta's Ebenezer Baptist Church. From here, Martin Luther King led a movement.

Warnock is 38 - a year younger than Dr. King when he died - and preaches the social gospel, lifting those left behind.

At his office, Warnock showed CBS News correspondent Mark Strassmann pictures of Dr. King.

"I think that one had the deepest impact," he said, "because wherever you're walking in the room, Dr. King's eyes are on you."

America's eyes followed Dr. King's fight for right, which is Warnock's fight today. His preacher father made sure he knew Dr. King's legacy.

Warnock recited King's speeches by age six. His calling came early - childhood friends called him "Rev," just as Warnock's congregation does today.

"When people come knocking on the doors of the church, looking for justice, looking for peace in a confused world, my job as a pastor is to make sure they don't go away hungry," he told Strassmann.

There's pressure to perform. This church was Dr. King's house, and its old guard has long memories.

Christine Farris, Martin Luther King's only surviving sibling, said Warnock addresses issues of social justice, "just as my brother addressed them.

"I have no need to be sympathetic - he does an outstanding job."

The urge to lead: Dr. King called it the "drum major instinct." Warnock has it, and a sense of his place in this place.

"I'd rather stand on his shoulders than walk in his shoes," Warnock said. "I'm very clear about that. There's only one Martin Luther King, Jr."

King's gone. But in what was his spiritual house, his dream lives on.
