the wayof peaceThe Columban Mission Institute’s Centre for Peace, Ecology and Justice has launched an online resource, The Way of Peace: ANZAC Centenary Edition (1915-2015), to enable Christian reflection and response during the time of the Anzac Centenary and beyond.

It is a re-working of a set of 8 sheets called The Way of Peace developed at the time of the invasion of Iraq and in conjunction with the UN Decade for a Culture of Peace and Nonviolence for the Children of the World 2000-2010.

The ANZAC Edition features eight themes:

1. Growing a Culture of Peace
2. Power and Domination
3. The Blame Game
4. Militarism and the Arms Industry
5. The Violence of Poverty
6. Violence Towards the Natural World
7. Forgiveness and Reconciliation
8. The Power of Active Nonviolence

As violence and warfare continue to plague so many parts of the world today, The Way of Peace provides stimulus for you to be creative and active in responding to the Christian call to be peacemakers in the footsteps of the nonviolent Jesus.

Download the complete resource "The Way of Peace: ANZAC Centenary Edition (1915-2015)".
