The Practice of Nonviolence

At age 28, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. led the first successful large-scale application of  nonviolent resistance in America: the Montgomery bus boycott. King interpreted nonviolent resistance as a call from courageous Christian faith. We will read and discuss King’s own account of this struggle in Stride Toward Freedom, and watch films of other nonviolent social movements in, A Force More Powerful. Explore with Rev. Lauren Cannon the theology, theory, and practical components of nonviolence. Take inspiration for living love in action in our daily lives.
