Each week, we will meet at a different church to hear from a different tradition about ways that our views of violence have influenced our spirituality and practices. The hope is that curiosity, respect, and hospitality will help us find unity amid our diversity and expand our thoughts in pursuit of peace.
March 11: Divine Word Roman Catholic Church-8100 Eagle Road
Scripture records the history of people of faith, warts and all. This includes many violent episodes, most of them seen as justifiable, even righteous, acts. At the heart of Christian theology is the death of Jesus. Some theologies see this violence as a holy requirement, leading to a view of violence being redemptive at times.
