The title of this event is adapted from a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr:

“If we are to have peace on earth, our loyalties must become ecumenical rather than sectional. Our loyalties must transcend our race, our tribe, our class, and our nation; and this means we must develop a world perspective.”

Christmas sermon, Atlanta, Georgia, 1967.
