An interfaith service to explore Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s life, vision and hope for a better world has been scheduled from 5 to 6 p.m. Jan. 19 at St. Theresa Catholic Church, 1041 Lyons Ave. The community is welcome to attend.

Special guest speaker Ram Smith will talk about Dr. King, who was a great inspiration to him while growing up in South Central Los Angeles. He also will sing songs of world peace and brotherhood, accompanying himself on the guitar and harmonium.

Smith is a yoga and meditation instructor at Ananda Village near Nevada City, Calif., and the director of the Ananda Meditation Retreat. He has lectured in Italy, Germany, Nigeria, South Africa, Australia and throughout the United States and Canada. Prior to coming to Ananda he played linebacker on the University of Berkeley 1995 championship football team, and tried out for the San Francisco 49ers. A major theme of his teachings is the spiritual unity of all mankind.

The event is sponsored by the Lake Tahoe Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in association with St. Theresa Catholic Church.
