Peacemaking and the Powers

Promoting Justice & Peace in Post-9/11 America
A 6-Session Program for Churches, Youth, & Religious Communities
on Racism, Materialism & Militarism
Description

This new IPJ program offers Biblical inspiration and prayer, challenging readings and worksheets, and practical action suggestions for responding to Jesus’ plea to do “the things that make for peace,” to Dr. King’s call to confront “the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism,” and to Walter Wink’s unmasking of the “powers of domination.” 

Ideal as a parish or congregation Lenten program or as part of a college or high school course on justice and peace, this 155-page binder provides detailed options and directions for leaders and the worksheets and optional background readings for participants for each of the six sessions.  Supplementary resources include a calendar of peace and justice days and seasons, additional reflective passages, music and videos, and books and websites on these issues.  For Catholic groups, there is an additional supplement on Catholic Social Teaching on these issues –

Session 1 – Jesus’ Peacemaking Plea & Our Response

Session 2 – Interpersonal Peacemaking & Pledge of Nonviolence

Session 3 – Confronting the “Powers” of Domination

Session 4 – Responding to the “Power” of Racism

Session 5 – Responding to the “Power” of Materialism

Session 6 – Responding to the “Power” of Militarism
