Jesus and building a culture of Non Violence

Facilitator:  Brendan McKeague

14 Barker Rd, Prospect SA 5082

An introductory workshop to deepen an understanding of Jesus and nonviolence and implications for conflict transformation, peace-building, mercy, forgiveness, restorative practices and links to the Year of Mercy.

The message for the celebration of the Fiftieth World Day of Peace by Pope Francis in January refers to nonviolence at many levels: personal, relational, societal, institutional-structural, international. These invite further questions about how do we actually live this nonviolent way and grow it within our spheres of influence...while also continuing to build on the Year of Mercy initiative and activities.

An opportunity to gain shared meaning/understanding of 'the nonviolent way', skill-building in the areas of dialogical methodologies such as Open Space, Appreciative Inquiry, circle work, restorative justice and how these link to building a culture of nonviolence. 

Using a dialogical methodology to explore ideas, questions, initiatives and promptings of the Spirit to make social justice a more deeply lived reality in our Catholic school communities.
