John Dear is an internationally known voice for peace and nonviolence. He is a popular speaker, peacemaker, organizer, lecturer, retreat leader and the author/editor of 30 books. He has organized and participated in nonviolent campaigns for over three decades; been arrested some 75 times in acts of civil disobedience against war and injustice; and been nominated several times for the Nobel Peace Prize.
John will share his conviction that nonviolence is the common ground of all world religions ... that we achieve nonviolence by entering into relationship with the God of peace and infinite mercy, viewing every person on the planet as a child of God. No matter where we are on our own path of discipleship, we will find inspiration, courage, and challenge in John's understanding of the Gospels and the testimony of his actions.
The event will be held on Friday, April 11 at 7pm, at St. Bridget School Auditorium, 80 Main Street, Manchester.
