Inner Light Ministries is proud to host
an extraordinary community dialogue and symposium entitled

Time Again to Break the Silence

Sat, March 8 from 8:30am to 9pm [3 sessions: 8:30-noon, 1:30-5:30, 7:30-9pm]
at the Inner Light Center, 5630 Soquel Drive, Soquel, CA 95073.

Our special guest will be Dr. Vincent Harding,
a colleague of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
and author of King’s Beyond Vietnam speech.
Dr. Harding joins Rev. Deborah Johnson and Dr. Liza Rankow, plus a host of small group facilitators, in helping our community
grapple with questions King posed to us in his 1967 speech, such as
What does it mean to be a spiritual person
and a U.S. citizen at the same time?
This year marks the 40th anniversary of King's assassination,
April 4, 1968, one year to the day after he gave the
Beyond Vietnam speech at Riverside Church in New York City.
[Printed and audio versions of the speech can be previewed at:
