Upcoming Event

Come hear Rodney L. Petersen, PhD on March 12, in the Alliance Room. Can we replace Just War with Just Peace? Religious communities have often offered “Just War” thinking to societies intent on confronting grave wrongs in spite of the incongruities between faith and violence. Is there another paradigm in times of conflict? Might that paradigm be “Just Peace”? What skills does “Just Peace” call forth? Are religious communities in a place to foster such critical skills? Secular, interfaith and Christian ecumenical organizations are taking up these questions in the search for alternatives to violence.
