About the Conference

The Church of the Brethren has a treasure in its heritage - the often-unrecognized gold of our peace heritage. This heritage helps us find a way to respond to real and challenging problems of violence in our time.

We will spend time looking at the roots of peace in the life of Christian faith (Brethren practice + Biblical roots + experiments in nonviolence).  We will draw from the history of the US Civil Rights movements and other struggles for justice.  We will practice applying this heritage to problems like violence and injustice.

How do we actually live out the values of peace and nonviolence, offering God's shalom and Christ's peace to the world around us?

BekahWhat is ministry? In my eyes ministry is in the pulpit, in the classroom, on the streets, your job at the post office, a local restaurant, or a coffee shop anywhere God calls you to be a ministering person. For me, this year, ministry means a non-traditional (not in a congregation) placement involving lots of administrative work as I serve the South/Central Indiana District of the Church of the Brethren as District Youth Director for the next eight months.
