Description: The concept of the Beloved Community proposed by 19th Century philosopher Josiah Royce and popularized by Martin Luther King, Jr., is based on a global vision in which all people can share in the wealth of the Earth. With global climate change now threatening the life-systems of our planet, we recognize the need to form strong, loyal bonds of trust and good will with one another as we seek to build healthy, sustainable and Beloved Communities and solve this crisis while we still can. This series is designed to educate, inspire, and offer the opportunity for respectful dialogue as members of a beloved community.
