Nurturing Peace in Contexts of Global Violence
A Conference for Theological Educators and Religious Leaders
The Interchurch Center
475 Riverside Drive
(Entrance on 120th Street and Claremont Ave)
New York, NY 10115
Religious leaders throughout the world in every faith tradition are challenged today to be active agents of peace. How can schools of theological education and faith-based grass roots organizations that are training religious leaders be more effective in teaching the ways of peace? How can we all advance peacemaking more effectively within our various communities of faith?
This conference will explore these questions as we seek to work together to teach and learn about peacemaking both locally and globally. Bringing together theological educators and others engaged in religious leadership training, we plan to explore existing programs, develop a fuller analysis of what peace means in our diverse religious and cultural our contexts, and plan together for more effective ways of teaching peacemaking.
