Sunday morning's sermon at Ebenezer Baptist Church was about the life and legacy of the late, great Muhammad Ali.
The church has long been at the center of the civil rights movement. Sunday, the church's Pastor Rev. Raphael Warnock, remembered Ali as a champion in that fight.
"The only thing better than his punch inside the ring was his voice outside the ring," Warnock said of Ali.
That lifetime spent fighting outside the ring continued to his final moments. Warnock described how even after Ali's organs had shut down, how the fighter's heart kept beating.
Warnock hoped others were inspired by that message.
"Whatever else shuts down, may your heart keep on beating," Warnock said, "keep beating for justice, keep beating for righteousness, keep beating for truth."
