53 years ago yesterday, on April 3rd, Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. In honor of his legacy, the King Center shared links to some of his speeches. His Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech felt particularly timely and helpful for our modern spiritual communities.
In it, he says, "Nonviolence is not sterile passivity, but a powerful moral force which makes for social transformation."
Watching MLK JRs speech in contrast with this moment between Dr. Cornell West and Don Lemmon 57 years later feels like a powerful reminder that our spiritual nature is not sterile, but deeply powerful!
