Disarming Fundamentalism: Phil Steger Speaks

 

Do you find yourself at a loss for words when trying to discuss your desire for peace through nonviolence with people who have differing views and religious beliefs? Would you like to have such conversations in a truly loving and respectful way?

 

Our guest speaker is Phil Steger of Friends for a Non-Violent World (www.fnvw.org), a national organization based in St. Paul. Phil is energizing, wise beyond his years, and deeply committed to global nonviolence.

 

He will provide information and introduce perspectives that can help people talk about peace and nonviolence with the religious right and others who see the issues of war and peace quite differently than we might. He will show us ways to address the spiritual and security (strategic) needs of religious fundamentalists, drawing on the ideas of Karen Armstrong in her books, The History of God and The Battle for God.

 

The session will also include time for dialogue with Phil and each other.
