The Gospel of Nonviolence with Fr. John Dear

The Gospel of Nonviolence with Fr. John Dear

Sunday, May 12

10am EDT

Online or In Person

Join us for a special Sunday event featuring renowned peace activist and author, Fr. John Dear. Fr. John will deliver a talk at the Mercer School of Theology at 10am EDT on his groundbreaking new book, The Gospel of Peace: A Commentary on Matthew, Mark, and Luke from the Perspective of Nonviolence. Fr. John will also preach at the Cathedral of the Incarnation at all three services. Both the talk and the worship services will be livestreamed online at the Cathedral's website.

"The life of peace is both an inner journey toward a disarmed heart and a public journey toward a disarmed world,” writes Fr. John. “This difficult but beautiful journey gives infinite meaning and fulfillment to life itself because our lives become a gift for the whole human race. With peace as the beginning, middle, and end of life, life makes sense.”

Renowned for his tireless advocacy for peace and nonviolence, Fr. John Dear has been praised by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize, and endorsed by figures like Thich Nhat Hanh, Joan Baez, and President Jimmy Carter, among others.

Don't miss this opportunity to engage with one of the most influential voices of our time on the transformative power of nonviolence. Copies of his new book will be available for purchase. Join us in embracing the path of peace and understanding.
