Active Peacemaking

Quakers have been committed to active peacemaking since their inception, in the mid-1600’s. Our understanding of the teachings of Jesus Christ lead us to work for peace and to address the causes of violence. This is not a passive response to uncomfortable situations, but an active response that often moves us out of our comfort zone. We offer this information as a challenge to action and obedience. » read more »
