Martin Luther King Jr’s embrace of non-violence was shaped by his connection to six principles which he drew from the teachings of Gandhi, the Fellowship of Reconciliation, Bayard Rustin, and others. Key among them was his affinity with the word agape, which called on those resisting violence (or wishing to promote such action) to hold to a belief in ‘redeeming good will toward all.’ In these days when lines of conflict seem drawn not in sand, but in concrete, we’ll examine more closely the enduring message of King’s embrace of agape and the ways in which we at First Parish in Waltham can help make those beliefs a reality.
