How should Christians respond to violence?
Based on Jesus’s nonviolent witness, this 8-session program prepares participants to respond to personal and societal conflict with nonviolent action, in order to build meaningful and lasting peace in their communities, in our world, and in their lives.
Nonviolence is different from passivity. It is a way of life grounded in a deeply-held moral conviction. It is a strategy, a method of confronting conflict or oppression that seeks to honor life. This program equips participants to respond to conflict with persistence, discipline, and courage, in order to end oppression and establish peace that honors the human dignity of all parties.
