Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King led a major civil rights movement with what he called “Soul Force.” What was at the heart of such a force, and how did it work? Is it something we take seriously today in our desire for social change? Rev. McArn will anticipate Dr. King’s 95th birthday and reflect on a spiritual transformation that happened to this young new pastor over a late–night cup of coffee in Montgomery, AL.
Jeffrey McArn served as College Chaplain for Hamilton College from 1996 to 2023, and continues as summer minister for a small church on Grindstone Island in the St. Lawrence River where he has been since 2005.
