Cherice Bock on Christian Peacemaker Teams (This Sunday)

In continuation of Peace Month we are excited to welcome two more guests from our Yearly Meeting this coming Sunday, Cherice and Joel Bock. Cherice will be speaking on her experience with Christian Peacemaker Teams and their work with the conflict between Palestine and Israel. She will also be reflecting on Jesus’ mission statement found in Luke 4:18-19 (cf. Isaiah 61:1-2):

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to bring good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives
and recovery of sight to the blind,
to let the oppressed go free,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.

Query (which is a question Christian Peacemaker Teams use):

  • “What would happen if Christians devoted the same discipline and self-sacrifice to nonviolent peacemaking that armies devote to war?”
