This Morning, Saint Ann’s of Old Lyme to Host Discussion of MLK’s Letter from Birmingham Jail

OLD LYME — On Sunday, Jan. 23, at 11:30 a.m., in honor of Martin Luther King Day, the Becoming Beloved Community Committee of Saint Ann’s is holding a discussion on Martin Luther King’s Letter from Birmingham Jail.

Written in the margins of a newspaper while in an Alabama jail in 1963, this landmark writing considers the fight against racism and reflects on the healing power of love.

Attendees are encouraged to read this vital piece of King’s writings while pondering and reflecting on its meaning at the time it was written and what message it holds for all of us now.
This event is open to all in the community; no reservations necessary.
Following the best practices for health and safety for all, it is asked that all persons, regardless of vaccination status, wear a facial covering while in the Church building. The situation will be assessed on an ongoing basis. Masks are located in the Narthex, as well as in the entry way, by the parish offices.
