BE ONE WITH THE POWER OF PEACE: April 14, 2021

During these times, it is important
to find peace within.

One of the most peaceful places
I find is in the word of Dr. King,
who combined the incredible force
of peace and love with activism.

As Dr. King said
“Before it is too late,
we must narrow the gaping chasm
between our proclamations of peace
and our lowly deeds . . . .
One day we must come to see
that peace is not merely a distant goal
that we seek
but a means by which
we arrive at that goal.”

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“[T]rue nonviolence is more
than the absence of violence.
It is the persistent
and determined application
of peaceable power
to offenses against the community
—in this case the world community.”

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Where Do We Go From Here?

FIND PEACE BY LISTENING HERE,
IF ONLY FOR A MINUTE.

“It is not enough to say, ‘We must not wage war.’
It is necessary to love peace and sacrifice for it.”

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Where Do We Go From Here?

“The stability of the large world house
which is ours will involve
a revolution of values
to accompany the scientific
and freedom revolutions
engulfing the earth.
We must rapidly begin
the shift from a ‘thing’ – oriented
society to a ‘person’- oriented society.”

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Where Do We Go From Here?

“[W]e must transform
the dynamics of the world
power struggle from
the nuclear arms race,
which no one can win,
to a creative contest
to harness man’s genius
for the purpose of making peace
and prosperity
a reality for all the nations
of the world.
In short, we must shift
the arms race into a ‘peace race.'”

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
