Annual Charism Day: The Most Radical Call of the Gospel: Nonviolence/Active Love


Our day will be a reflection on the understanding essential to Christianity, and key to many other systems of belief, that active love and nonviolence must be at the center of our relationship to one another. As we seek to find a way to live and speak our deep concern for the world, this understanding can guide our response to unbridled capitalism, poverty, racism, war and the militarization of society.
