Building Beloved Community
Rev. Carol Strecker, minister
Beloved Community is a term the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. popularized during the Civil Rights movement. Dr. King’s vision was of an inclusive community where everyone is welcome at the table of humanity — not in spite of their differences but because of them. In a contemporary climate of divisiveness and polarization we need Dr. King’s vision of Beloved Community more than ever. As people who affirm the worth and dignity of all people, what can we do to help realize the Beloved Community today?
