Holding faith: creating peace in a violent world
creating peace in a violent world
It is 350 years since Quakers made their declaration of non-violence to Charles II. What does committing to peace mean in a violent world? How might this commitment shape our relationships with one another, ourselves and the Earth? David Gee argues for a contemporary, practical faith that enlivens our humanity and stands with life’s dignity in the face of its violation.
Holding faith is a new title from Quaker Books and was officially launched at Yearly Meeting Gathering in Canterbury at the beginning of August.
David Gee is a writer, campaigner and facilitator. He has worked for Quaker Peace and Social Witness and the Alternatives to Violence Project, and in 2008 produced the influential report, Informed Choice on the ethics of military recruitment.
