“Beloved Community on the Horizon”

Today’s Topic:

Philosopher and theologian Josiah Royce created the term “Beloved Community” at the beginning of the 20th Century to refer to the ideal community of all people dedicated to loyalty, truth, and reality. In the mid-20th Century, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. popularized and specified the term to refer to mean a community not ravaged by the three evils of racism, poverty, and militarism.

How does our understanding of the Beloved Community build on these theological foundations? When you imagine a community unharmed by racism, poverty, and militarism, what does it feel like? What is the bridge between here and that horizon?

Worship Team:
