We are delighted to invite you to the next Trinity Forum Reading Group in Washington, DC on Wednesday, May 23rd, where we will discuss the Trinity Forum Reading featuring Martin Luther King, Jr.'s extraordinary "Letter from Birmingham Jail" and its implications for our current political and cultural context.

Trinity Forum Reading Groups provide opportunities to reflect on and discuss great works of literature and letters. From its publication in 1963, Dr. King's letter spread quickly around the country as a manifesto articulating the urgency in redressing injustice, the interconnectedness of citizens, the necessity of discernment in responding rightly to unjust laws, and the demands of courage born of faith. Our Trinity Forum Reading features Dr. King's brilliant and powerful letter, along with an incisive and fascinating introduction by Rev. Dr. Robert Franklin and Ambassador Andrew Young.

Our Trinity Forum Readings and Reading Groups are ways in which we aim to cultivate and disseminate the best of Christian-thought, and we hope this discussion will offer wisdom and encouragement. You can order a hard copy of the Reading "Letter from Birmingham Jail" to prepare for our discussion by visiting the Trinity Forum online store.

Registration is free, but required. To participate in this Reading Group, please reserve your seat by clicking on the link above.
