peace forum webcastBethany Seminary and Earlham School of Religion's (ESR) weekly Peace Forum gathering is growing! Not only are participants sitting on the floor because the room's 90 chairs are full, the crowd is gathering online. Peace Forum presentations can be viewed live or in archived form. Online participants in the live webcasts can even pose questions and comments to the presenter.

Peace Forum is a weekly lunch and speaker series focusing on diverse peace and justice topics. Students and faculty from Bethany Seminary, ESR, and Earlham College, and interested persons from the Richmond community join together each week over a free, delicious lunch and rich conversation. This is the only weekly gathering where these communities come together to share food and friendship and discuss matters of faith and intellectual pursuit. 

daniel hunterLive and archived webcasts of Peace Forum allow students in Connections and Access--Bethany and ESR's growing distance education programs--to participate in Peace Forum. Making Peace Forum accessible to students from a distance also opens doors for MDiv Connections and MA Connections students to pursue a Peace Studies Emphasis through Bethany's MDiv program. “Accessibility is essential as we build cultures of peace. We are delighted to have people joining us online for Peace Forum – we just wish they were here to enjoy the delicious lunch and rich conversation!” said Anna Lisa Gross, Bethany's Peace Studies Student Coordinator.

Nick Miller Kauffman
Master of Arts

NickAfter four years at Manchester College, I found my thirst for knowledge was far from quenched. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in peace studies, but I didn't want to push on into the social sciences. With Bethany's master's degree in theology with a peace studies emphasis, I saw an opportunity to continue studying the peace and justice issues that so impassion me from the humanities perspective, and that I found so enlivening in my final year of college. Here I can study, learn, and prepare for whatever comes next. I am on first-name terms with a faculty that is committed to me--something that would be hard to find at a larger school. And I can see already that the same issues that excite me are exciting to my professors.
