Some Martin Luther King, Jr Reflections and Resources

"I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant."
- Martin Luther King, Jr., from his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech, Dec. 10, 1964

The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state. It must be the guide and the critic of the state, and never its tool. If the church does not recapture its prophetic zeal, it will become an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority.

Remembering an Interfaith Friendship

As the nation celebrates Martin Luther King Day, we at Interfaith Voices explore a part of King’s life often overlooked: his deep bond with Jewish spiritual leader Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel. Rabbi Heschel’s daugher, Susannah, joins us to reflect on

their legacy.

Dr. Susannah Heschel, Professor of Jewish Studies at Dartmouth College
