Confronting Chaos, Forging Community
Challenging Racism, Materialism and Militarization
Over the past year, our nation has experienced a divisive election in which racism, xenophobia, and religious bigotry were a constant.

When Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. posed the question, "Where do we go from here: Chaos or Community?" in his book of the same title 50 years ago, no one could have imagined that we would still be wrestling with this question today. In that same year on April 4, 1967, a year to the day before Dr. King was assassinated, he spoke at Riverside Church in New York addressing the intersectionality of "the giant triplets of racism, extreme materialism, and militarism" as the principal challenges of the time. Five decades later, Dr. King's prophetic insights and challenges - and the stark choice between chaos and community -- are incredibly current.
