In 1966, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., spoke to our General Assembly about not sleeping through the revolution. The most recent report from the Commission on Institutional Change, Widening the Circle of Concern, reports that we have been dozing through our own work. Rev. Tracie discusses the report and what we can do to widen our circle of love.
