Martin Luther King, Jr.: A Theologian with a Passion for Reconciliation -- Sightings (Noel Leo Erskine)
On Monday we will observe the 48th anniversary of the assassination of the Martin Luther King, Jr. His vision of the Beloved Community, in which humanity experienced true reconciliation, was rooted in his incarnational theology. In some ways we have achieved parts of this vision, but in other ways we remain from its realization. Even in his own frailty Dr. King sought to embody this vision, inviting us as well to embrace the call to love one's neighbor. I invite you to reflect Dr. King's legacy as you read this poignant essay by Noel Leo Erskine of Emory University.
