We tend to forget that in his famous “Beyond Vietnam” sermon at Riverside Church, 4 April 1967 Martin Luther King Jr. claimed that the US is “the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today, my own government.” The older he got, the deeper his analysis of the causes of poverty and violence became, the more often he talked about the need for our country to “be born again.” This is the kind of born again faith we need to herald. — Ken Sehested
