Blessed are the Peacemakers
A Call to Christ’s Way of Nonviolence
Friday, July 28, 7 to 10 p.m. and Saturday, July 29, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Jesus counsels, “Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called Children of God,” to Palestinian Jews living under an oppressive, Roman occupation. Paul writes to the church in Rome, “Never pay back evil for evil to anyone…,” as it is struggling with racial and cultural divisions between Jew and Gentile.
Is the call to nonviolence still a call for us today? What are the alternative methods of engagement, and how can we become aware of them and learn to use them both in our relational and social contexts?
We are happy to announce speakers Ken Butigan, John Dear, and Kit Evans-Ford from Pace e Bene Nonviolence Services, who will be joining us for intentional conversation and training on how to build culture of nonviolence. We hope you can join us for this transforming experience.
Early registrations through July 1. Cost: $95 through July 1. $110 after July 1.
