Soon, a very famous Peace Activist will be coming to Atlanta. Pax Christi, St. Jude will be hosting Fr. John Dear, author of countless books, musician, breaker of laws meant to be broken(see also: apartheid, laws which restrict civil rights for all, etc.), Roman Catholic priest.
Fr. John Dear's most recent, eloquent treatise on peace, is called "A Persistent Peace", and I am now re-reading this marvelous book, with its' part-memoir/part-call-to-peace tone.
Fr. Dear makes you believe in your own power. Want to know more? Sign up for the Friday March 5th(evening only, 7:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M.), and
Saturday March 6th(9:00 A.M.-5:00 P.M., includes light breakfast and full lunch), "Retreat" which will be held here in Atlanta.
Whether you are Roman Catholic, garden-variety Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, Taoist, Muslim, Roscrucian, Agnostic, even A-Theist or Non-Theist, come hear this articulate, brave man who has kept his humility--speak.
