OVERCOMING EVIL: Ordinary People Making a Difference
February 13-15
Hesston Mennonite Church. Hesston College Campus 

     Being a pacifist does not necessarily mean being passive, but what does it mean to be a person of active nonviolence? How  can we help build a global grassroots movement of nonviolence to make a more just society? These are questions posed by Father John Dear, 2008 Nobel Peace Prize nominee, longtime peace activist and Pace e Bene staff member.  
     Father Dear has spent more than three decades speaking about peace and  nonviolence and has served as the director of the Fellowship of Reconciliation,  the largest interfaith peace organization in the U.S. His book, The  Nonviolent Life , proposes a simple vision of nonviolence that everyone  can aspire to. Father Dear shares his belief that peace is not something static,  but a way to be engaged--mind, body, and spirit--to love yourself, to love your  neighbor, your enemy and the world...and to understand the profound  responsibility in doing all of these.
