Friday Update


Dr. King’s 3rd Step
January 15, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. Online and in-person 

Rev. Dr. Matthew Johnson
In his letter from Birmingham Jail, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., outlined three steps to make social change.  The third step, which he called “self-purification”, is very important but often skipped – then and now.  We’ll look at how we ground our work for justice so that we approach this from our clear center instead of our anxiety or anger.
