Priest's slaying in Birmingham to be remembered in church service

from the article by Greg Garrison in the Birmingham News:

The 1921 slaying of a Catholic priest in Birming­ham by a Methodist min­­ister will be the subject of repentance during a 6:30 p.m. Ash Wednesday service at Highlands United Meth­odist Church, 1045 20th Street South, led by United Methodist Bishop William Willimon.

"It's going to be a power­ful and a historic event," said Jim Pinto, director of the Father James E. Coyle Memorial Project. "We're not going to live in the past, but we want to more fully understand the past."

Martin Luther King and life after hate

from the entry by Evelyn Zellerer on Peace of the Circle:

....“The nonviolent approach does not immediately change the heart of the oppressor. It first does something to the hearts and souls of those committed to it. It gives them new self-respect; it calls up resources of strength and courage that they did not know they had. Finally it reaches the opponent and so stirs his conscience that reconciliation becomes a reality.” [Martin Luther King]
