Nonviolence program March 30 at St. Joseph’s

“Living the Way of Nonviolence: Transforming Our Hearts, Our Minds, Our Culture” is the topic for a 9 a.m. to noon program Saturday, March 30, at the Burke Center of St. Joseph Parish, 17951 Dixie Highway in Homewood.
 
Phillip Bradley, president of NonViolenceWorks, will lead attendees in reflecting on their own experiences of violence, both as perpetrators and victims. He has devoted his life’s work to the study and practice of nonviolence and is well known in many Chicago communities. Bradley, a violence prevention specialist, has offered education and training in character development and nonviolence in schools, churches and juvenile detention facilities.
 
“Once aware of the role we each play in perpetuating violence, we will explore the principles of nonviolence that Jesus presented in the Sermon on the Mount,” Bradley said, “and will learn how we can transform our hearts and minds into living the way of nonviolence.”
 
This program is open. A free-will offering will be accepted. Breakfast will be served.  Persons interested in attending are urged to reply to [email protected].
