BENEFITING: Christian Peacemaker Teams
EVENT DATE: Feb 14, 2014
Can you spare a $5-$20 donation?
Everyone knows that Mark Driscoll thinks that "the Prince of Peace is not a pacifist" or a "pansy."* He's even said that "engaging evil in order to protect others is not evil," and we agree, but we also think the Way of Jesus means we engage evil non-violently, just like Jesus does in the Gospels.
Unfortunately, many like Mark Driscoll think that all Christian Pacifists are "pansies." But anyone who chooses to join a CPT delegation in places like Colombia, Iraq, Palestine, Democratic Republic of the Congo, and the US/Mexico borderlands knows that can't be true. We want Mark Driscoll to experience the bold, raw, non-violent activism of a CPTers and their peacemaking partners in Colombia, Iraq, Palestine and Canada.
YOU can help by using social media to let Mark know that you think he should experience Christian non-violence for himself. If Mark doesn't think he is up to the challenge, we'll take all monies raised and use them for CPT's general scholarship fund. This fund empowers CPT delegates to visit peacemakers around the world who are doing the difficult work of transforming violence and oppression.
ABOUT CPT, International
CPT places violence-reduction teams in crisis situations and militarized areas around the world at the invitation of local peace and human rights workers. CPT embraces the vision of unarmed intervention waged by committed peacemakers ready to risk injury and death in bold attempts to transform lethal conflict through the nonviolent power of God’s truth and love.
