Dr. King on Loving Enemies- then and now (PPR podcast)

  “Nonviolence aims at the restoration of relationships.” -Michael Nagler on this week’s episode of Peace Paradigm Radio! In this week’s show, Stephanie and Michael get into a passionate discussion on nonviolent strategy in our bi-monthly nonviolence in the news report and both emerge with new insights about this great power. As January is the month in which we celebrate Dr. King’s holiday in the United States, they have dedicated a portion of each show this month to King’s work. They discuss King’s 1957 sermon on “loving your enemies” and its relevance for then and, most importantly, today. You can read that sermon here.
