"[non]Violence: Lessons from Community of Christ History" with Seth Bryant
In this presentation, Seth Bryant argues that if we desire to become a people of nonviolence we need to interrogate what generates violence and correct any complicity. To this end, the presentation explores Community of Christ's historic vision and mission, and how that orientation contributes to violence. He will focus on specific examples of how Zion generated scarcity, and why that engendered violence; and how the Saints responded to violence. He also looks at what the Saints did right in promoting peace. His lecture concludes with lessons learned from our past that are relevant today, for the church, individuals and families, and communities.
