I was 8 years old when The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. I was traumatized and horrified. How could a man preaching non-violence be killed so violently? I felt called to do the work of fierce love, and so many of his words have inspired me and guided my work.
With me in this episode of Just Faith are The Rev. Dr. James Forbes Jr., Senior Minister Emeritus of the historic Riverside Church in New York City; best-selling author Marianne Williamson; best-selling author Jim Wallis; and Michael-Ray Mathews, Director of Clergy Organizing for PICO National Network and a Senior Fellow at Auburn Seminary.
This is what love looks like. Across race. Across borders. You and I can do this. Create the beloved community. One relationship at a time.
