Reconstructing Peace: Learning the Good Faith Habit of Restorative Justice and Peacemaking

ID 592329

Sat 12:00pm - 12:50pm

Venue: Library


Type of Experience: Speaking

Content Type: Reconstructing belief in an ethical God.

Second in series. First one is Deconstructing Retribution. Once we expose bad faith in our culturebelief in a duplicitous, retributive, violent god, what path remains? While drawing out input from the audience, Michael uses forgotten history to help us understand Jesus' subversive path of peace and how it can transform our society if we only ignite it. Rather than waging war and punishment to bring justice to the world, the peaceable way restores breached relationships, advocates for restorative criminal justice, and active-resistance pacifism. Learn redemptive examples of Blacks and Jews converting racists, Muslims reforming domestic terrorists, law enforcement treating criminals with dignity and love, and nonviolent resistance to evil and war. What would change in us, our country, and our world if we truly plotted peace rather than retribution?
