A Witness for Conscience in a World Addicted to War

”Love one another
as I have loved you”
Jesus





Welcome to our web site and blog, a growing collection of articles and resources about the life of peace in a country at war. I am deeply convinced that we are called by Jesus, by The Sermon on the Mount, and by the stirrings of compassion that live in every human heart, to speak out against America’s drift toward becoming a country permanently at war, a country defined primarily by its power to injure and to kill.  I am convinced, brothers and sisters, that America has more to offer the world than war, and that we have better lives to live than to be the silent accomplices of war. You will find here in these pages the record of our struggles to live that better life. We invite you to find encouragement here for your path of deeper witness.
