Triangle MLK Celebration | January 14-17

Beloved Community – Here and Now

Triangle Martin Luther King, Jr. Annual Celebration

The evidence is very strong in today’s society that now is the time to stand for what is humane, right, and just. It is also time to recognize that we are bound together in this world with the potential to create a society of goodness and hope.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. acknowledged the importance of a just society abounding with fairness and basic respect for all people. In his theology and methodology, he embraced a commitment to create a glimpse of the Kingdom of God by stressing the beauty of the “Beloved Community”, where all human and natural life is deemed sacred and worthy of respect and support. He often preached about a single garment of destiny expressing his global vision of justice. On December 11, 1960, in a sermon entitled “The Three Dimensions of a Complete Life”, Dr. King expounds on this vision:

“I am absolutely convinced that God is not interested merely in the freedom of black men and brown men and yellow men. But God is interested in the freedom of the whole human race, the creation of a society where all men will live together as brothers and every man will respect the dignity and worth of all human personality.”
