A Day of Reflection with Bishop Thomas Gumbleton

 

  Active Love and Nonviolence

                   The Only Moral Response To War

            A  Day of Reflection with Bishop Thomas Gumbleton             

        Friday, August 17 starting at 9:00 AM

 

   

Our day will be a reflection on the understanding essential to Christianity, and key to many other systems of belief, that active love and nonviolence must be at the center of our relationship to one another. As we seek to find a way to live and speak our deep concern for the world, this understanding can guide our response to unbridled capitalism, poverty, racism, war and the militarization of society.

Our conference is structured to create a continuous flowing dialogue among the presenters while maximizing audience participation throughout the day.                      
 This will be accomplished by having our speakers participate in a series of 3 sequential panels which will consider their work , the issues they are involved with, their own personal journey towards "revolutionary love". We will ask them to look at priorities, obstacles, and strategies for, to quote, Dr. King, "bending the arc of history towards peace and justice." Finally, we will ask them to help us imagine how true transformation might be realized.
