Faith Based Materials

Martin Luther King, Jr. articulates his vision of the beloved community in four steps:

  • Learning our history, as painful as that may be;
  • Developing a process by which discussion of these things can lead to mutual compassion;
  • Crafting a vision for community where everyone has a seat at the table;
  • Realizing sacrifice: what are we prepared to give up or lay down in order to form such a community?

Traces of the Trade can serve as a tool to support the process of creating that beloved community in your own faith group and the broader society.

The Unitarian Universalist association created a guide to accompany the film. You can find it here.  Additional resources for each step of this process are available at “Ideas for Congregations” and “Actions of Faith Communities” listed to the right.
