  • John Dear is an internationally known voice for peace and nonviolence. A long time peace activist, he served as director of the Fellowship of Reconciliation; and after September 11, 2001, a Red Cross coordinator of chaplains at the Family Assistance Center in New York. He has traveled the war zones of the world, been arrested some 75 times for peace, led Nobel Peace prize winners to Iraq, given thousands of lectures on peace across the U.S., and served as a pastor of several churches in New Mexico. He writes a weekly column for “The National Catholic Reporter” at www.ncronline.org. Archbishop Desmond Tutu, among others, has nominated John Dear for the Nobel Peace Prize. John’s many books include: Lazarus, Come Forth!; The God of Peace; Transfiguration; You Will Be My Witnesses; Living Peace; The Questions of Jesus; Put Down Your Sword; Jesus the Rebel; Peace Behind Bars; Disarming the Heart, and his autobiography, A Persistent Peace. He is featured in the DVD film, “The Narrow Path.” See: www.johndear.org
  • When Jesus rose from the dead, he continued his campaign of active nonviolence by offering his gift of peace and sending us forth to be his witnesses. He wants us, as people of resurrection, to have nothing to do with Death, to reject violence, injustice and war, and to carry on his life-giving work of peace, nonviolence and justice. Together, we will read the four accounts of Jesus’ resurrection, reflect on them from the perspective of peace, justice and nonviolence, and share how our lives and work can become more and more people of peace, justice, nonviolence, and resurrection. John will give presentations, offer questions for small group conversation, and lead large group discussions. The morning will focus primarily on Luke 24, the road to Emmaus story, and the afternoon on John 20-21, the first breakfast and the call to discipleship. Together, we will hear the risen Jesus send us forth again into the world of war and injustice to be his witnesses of peace and justice.

  • For three decades Kathy Kelly has been an active and dedicated witness against war. She visits areas of neo-imperial military intervention, stays in the homes of ordinary people who are victims of war and brings back their stories to ordinary people in the United States and other countries to make them aware of the human effects of U.S. policies of military domination. In this calling, since 1985, she has visited Nicaragua, Guatemala, Haiti, many times to Iraq during both U.S. invasions and the period of economic siege warfare between the invasions, Bosnia, Palestine during the Intifada, Gaza during the Israeli invasion, Pakistan, and many times to Afghanistan since 2010. She has also been arrested and imprisoned in the United States many times for nonviolent protests against war, nuclear weapons, and most recently, drone warfare attacks in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Kathy is a founder and co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence based in Chicago.
  • Bill Slavick was the coordinator of Pax Christi Maine for 23 years. He has published hundreds of Church World peace and social justice feature articles and newspaper op eds. Bill founded Maine for Palestinian Rights and has spoken, written, and led several CTA caucuses on Palestine. In 2006, Bill was a candidate for the U.S. Senate.
  • Emphasizing empathy for people in the Middle East and Central Asia who are trapped in war zones or living under occupation, Slavick and Kelly will use anecdotes, interactive exercises, videos, maps, graphs and updated analyses to dismantle the notion that our violence and support of militarism serves ordinary civilians living in Israel, the West Bank, Gaza, Afghanistan or Pakistan. Participants will work together to develop tools for outreach and education in faith-based communities.
