Ijohn-dear_0.pngs the vocation of peacemaker reserved for a chosen few or is it your call too? The late Trappist monk Thomas Merton believed peacemaking and nonviolence were Gospel imperatives. In this four-week eCourse, best-selling author and peace activist John Dear explores how the writings and mentoring of Merton profoundly influenced the peace landscape of the institutional church and continues to shape it still. More importantly it forces all of us who claim to be followers of Jesus to grapple with the demanding invitation of the Sermon on the Mount. “Thomas Merton and Peacemaking” is a call to active nonviolence for a world in desperate need of creative and courageous alternatives to injustice and conflict. It is also a call to a nonviolent heart.
