Following Jesus: A Nonviolent Faith

December 10, 2010

Just wanted to tuck this link to followingjesus.org somewhere so I could find it later.  Kurt Struckmeyer has put together straightforward informational site on following Jesus, including this page on non-violent faith.  Gives a good sketch of Walter Wink and some critique of traditional atonement theory.   A good resource if you ever needed to send someone to a site for an introduction.

To try at home: Looking for some excitement on a cold, drafty evening in December?  Read through this page, asking yourself: “What are the implications of these ideas for the ways we do Holy Communion?  What would it mean to turn and apply the principles of nonviolence to the ways that the church chooses to remember Jesus in the sacrament?

A Nonviolent Faith.
