My sermon tomorrow will look at civil disobedience as understood by MLK. The sermon series is focusing on those parts of his message, that are left out on MLK Day celebrations. When in jail, Dr. King read Thoreau and Gandhi and realized that there is a sense in which we all co-operate with the oppression in our culture. He would begin to train people in a new kind of freedom, where people would refuse to co-operate with that which humiliated them, or oppressed another human being, thus unleasing what he called “Soulforce”. The title of the sermon is “Civil Disobedience: The importance of crossing the line.”
