I have said this to you so that in me you may have peace. In the world you face persecution, but take courage: I have conquered the world!” —John 16:33

Christian nonviolence is not a strategy to rid the world of violence, but rather the way Christians must live in a world of violence. In short Christians are not nonviolent because we believe our nonviolence is a strategy to rid the world of war, but rather because faithful followers of Christ in a world of war cannot imagine being anything else than nonviolent. — Stanley Hauerwas, September 11, 2001: A Pacifist Response, in “The South Atlantic Quarterly”, Spring 2002, Duke University Press

Let me take courage in the work of nonviolence, setting my vision on your hope for a world without harm. Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
