The Holistic Spirituality of Martin Luther King, Jr.

From the time of the Hebrew prophets, there have always been voices that challenge us to return to our highest calling and to find a path toward greater personal and social integrity. Martin Luther King, Jr. practiced a “holistic spirituality” in which he took interpersonal, and sociopolitical aspects of his faith seriously. In this service, we will honor the continuing legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., and why his call and holistic approach still echo within and among us. Following the service, A Soul Matters Circle on this month’s theme of “Integrity” will be facilitated from 12:00-12:45 p.m. by Rev. Peers. Gather with your beverage in the front of the sanctuary All are welcome.

The Most Radical Thing

Bumper sticker theology tells us, “The most radical thing we can do is introduce people to one another.” But introductions are only the start. Our Unitarian Universalist faith and history call us to the profound work of going past introductions toward building relationships. This requires deep care and loving dedication. Such effort is especially necessary—and especially transformative—when contacts span geographic, theological, linguistic, economic or cultural boundaries. Rev. Andrew Weber is a proud, life-long Unitarian Universalist, currently living in Newark, DE, with his wife and two small children. He grew up in a family devoted to Main Line Unitarian Church’s partnership with the Unitarian church in Várfalva, Transylvania. He is the Travel Program Director with the Unitarian Universalist Partner Church Council and believes strongly in incorporating spirituality and faith identity in travel experiences. He is passionate about mutual partnership because it has changed his life.
