Cultivating Nonviolence, Harvesting Peace

Inspired by a reinvigorated conversation about nonviolence within the Catholic Church, Cultivating Nonviolence, Harvesting Peace is an 8-week JustFaith Ministries program focusing on nonviolence from a Christian perspective. Based on Jesus as model of nonviolence, the program takes participants through explorations from self-focused nonviolence to what nonviolence can look like on a national or global scale. The program includes prayer, mind- and heart-opening readings and videos, spiritual exercises, dialogue, and invitations to action.

This program was developed in partnership with Maryknoll.

Cultivating Nonviolence, Harvesting Peace consists of eight 2 ½-hour sessions. All sessions include prayer, dialogue, active listening, and relationship-building. Some sessions may include videos and/or a guest speaker. 

JustFaith Ministries recommends that a group be approximately eight to fifteen people.  Groups are co-facilitated by one or two participants.

Participants deepen their understanding through in-depth reading and viewing videos and online materials. The most essential resource is the community formed through the process.

Immersion Experience
To broaden perspectives, Cultivating Nonviolence, Harvesting Peace includes an immersion. Participants visit local organizations to learn from those involved with the issue.
