Waging Peace

In August we will be showing the inspiring  documentary “Waging Peace: Muslim and Christian Alternatives”. This documentary  explores threads of peacemaking in both Muslim and Christian traditions through the years. It includes stories of how people in these faith groups are working to overcome mistrust, hatred and violence by working to understand each other.

Stories include…A peace camp for Christian, Jewish and Muslim children helps build bridges of understanding at an early age…Working together, Muslims and Christians make quilts for refugees and learn to know one another…A group of Muslim medical students establish a health clinic for their low-income neighbors…Members of Christian Peacemaker Teams provide a peaceful presence in Iraq…Seminary students from many faith traditions study in an interfaith setting.

This hour-long video will be shown August 17th at 10 am and August 21 at 7 pm in the church library.
