Join us for an overview of Kingian Nonviolence Conflict Reconciliation at 5pm ET / 4pm CT / 2pm PT on July 24, 2024. Kingian Nonviolence is an approach to conflict and community leadership that offers values and methods useful for anyone who wants to use conflict constructively in your personal life, in group settings, or in community issues and building a reconciled world. 
We are living as disciples of Jesus in a time of war, injustice, and violence. As the Prince of Peace, Jesus calls us to love enemies and overcome evil with good. We need tools and the spirit of peacemaking for these discipleship tasks.

What is the crisis where you are-- and what might being a nonviolent Christian lead you to do about it? Are you hungry to get involved in dynamic and creative ways in the concerns and conflicts of your community?  Join us to explore nonviolence as an active force based in agape love.  Kingian Nonviolence Conflict Reconciliation is a philosophy and methodology based in the work of the Rev Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the leaders of the Civil Rights era. Curriculum co-author David Jehnsen (Living Peace CoB, Columbus OH) played an important role in codifying the lessons of the movement for future generations. Join us to consider the call of nonviolence on our lives as disciples of Jesus. 

“Together, as the Church of the Brethren, we will passionately live and share the radical transformation and holistic peace of Jesus Christ through relationship-based neighborhood engagement. To move us forward, we will develop a culture of calling and equipping disciples who are innovative, adaptable, and fearless.” - Church of the Brethren “Compelling Vision” Statement
