What does it mean to follow the nonviolent Christ?

Resurrection_Living_cover for Web The Presbyterian Peacemaking Program is pleased to announce the publication of a journal resource on nonviolence.

Resurrection Living: Journeying with the Nonviolent Christ is designed as a journal to help individuals explore the theology and ethics of nonviolence and ways to practice it in their daily lives. It invites users to engage in prayerful reflection on Scripture, documents of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), and the writings of theologians and practitioners of nonviolence through the ages. The fifty-two entries may be used individually or in community on a daily or weekly basis. Ideas for using the journal in various settings are included. However the journal is used, at its heart is an invitation to ponder, “What does it mean for me to follow the nonviolent Christ today in the place where I live and around God’s world?”
