Letter from a Birmingham Jail Discussion Series

Letter from a Birmingham Jail Discussion Series
January 20 and 27 and February 3, from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. via Zoom

Pr. Rodriguez and the ARC committee of Christ the King Church invites you to a three-part intergenerational discussion of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail,” including some sections from his last book, “Where Do We Go From Here?”

How do we live ever more into our calling as Micah (6:8) says, “Do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” How can we as CTK live out of the vision for life together cast by Dr. MLK Jr. in his letter? Enclosed is a .pdf document with a copy of MLK Jr.’s letter, the discussion outline and further resources for self-study.
