Spiritual Celebration 2011
Sun, 01/29/2012 - 4:00pm - 5:30pm
Durham Community Church, Main Street, Durham
“On some positions, Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' But conscience asks the question, 'Is it right?' And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but because conscience tells one it is right.” Martin Luther King Jr., 1968.
Peace and Economic Justice: A Spiritual Celebration of the Legacy and Life of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Join the UNH and Durham communities in an inter-faith and multi-faith spiritual celebration centered on The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King’s call for economic justice. This is a spirited remembrance of the life and legacy of The Rev Dr. Martin Luther King in song, readings, reflection, and prayer. We hope to inspire a vision of justice to be put into practice: a dream to be made real.
The featured speaker will be Arnie Alpert, Program Director for the NH Office of the American Friends Service Committee and a key figure in the eventual adoption of the Martin Luther King holiday in New Hampshire. There will also be poetry and gifts of song offered by UNH students Carla Joseph, Marcela Cruz, Diane Spires and the Nat Balch Trio. A reception will follow the program. All are welcome to this moving and joyous evening!
