“Building the Beloved Community”

Dr. King wrote, “Our goal is to create a beloved community and this will require a qualitative change in our souls as well as a quantitative change in our lives.” He spoke frequently of Beloved Community, a dream rooted in liberation theology, mercy, and radical love, a dream which guides us all toward a future where hate and fear are no more. Rev. Frederic Muir said, “Knowing ourselves as beloved communities is a story the world awaits—and if not the world, then at the very least those who ache and yearn for what we can be.” Let’s explore what it might take to build that dream together.
