Adult Forum: No One is Beyond Redemption (Speaker Session)

Details

Date:
October 18
Time:
11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Speaker: Dr. Eli McCarthy, founder of DC Peace Team, author, and Georgetown University professor

Please join us this Sunday at 11:00 am by Zoom as we begin our examination of the third pillar of biblical justice: no one is beyond redemption. Our guest this week, Dr. Eli McCarthy, is the founder of the DC Peace Team, an author, and a Georgetown University professor in Justice and Peace Studies. His most recent book, A Just Peace Ethic Primer, outlines the ethical, theological ,and activist underpinnings of a “just peace” ethic, an approach that turns our attention to rehumanization, participatory processes, nonviolent resistance, restorative justice, reconciliation, racial justice, and creative strategies of active nonviolence to build sustainable peace, transform conflict, and end cycles of violence.

Discussion Questions:

  • Whom have I villianized or am indifferent to in this context, situation, or conflict?
  • Who do I believe does not deserve goodness and well-being, and why?

You can join the forum on Zoom or livestreamed on our YouTube channel. To get Zoom meeting information, email office@stjohnsnorwood.org and sign up for our mailing list.
