On the anniversary of his death, we at the American Baptist Seminary of the West deeply mourn the loss of fellow Baptist, fellow Christian, fellow pastor, fellow human being, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We honor his spirit when we imitate him as he imitated Christ: waging peace, challenging injustice, and loving others. In this high and holy season, we are grateful for his life, we mourn his death, and we anticipate, with all the saints, his resurrection into life everlasting. May he rest in peace even as we work to make his dream of a beloved community come to pass on earth as it is in heaven.

-President Jim Brenneman
