In a world overwhelmed by violence, the Geneva Conventions represent one of the few examples of long term cooperation to limit the violence of war.  With the recent introduction of new weapons technologies such as Depleted Uranium bullets and anti-tank projectiles, and cluster bombs that scatter the countryside with unexploded hand-grenade sized bomblets, the violence of war, conducted by allegedly civilized nations, now includes an unending war on civilians.  You are invited to join the noble Geneva Conventions effort, which began in the 1860s by reaching out to many kings and princes, and today needs to include all citizens of all countries.   is our recent position paper on the psychology and politics of torture, including a bibliography on the topic.

Liberation theology is an effort to think clearly about the meaning of religious faith in the context of oppression, war, poverty, inequality and environmental destruction, and to live a compassionate, courageous and life-sustaining response to those conditions, a response that not only addresses the needs of the injured and oppressed, but also works to change the structures and ongoing processes of injury and oppression.


 

 

  


Full Circle EcoHouse of Prayer - Port Huron, Michigan -  

From the moment we are, we-are-for-the-other. Our call from God is to actively be that which we are. Yet as we contemplate this moment in history, the violence, consumerism and isolation prevalent in the human community seem to manifest a disregard or even rejection of the responsibility to be “each for all.” This year at FC we want to deepen our recognition of this disconnection and of the destruction it engenders. We want to recognize that we who wound can also heal. We want to contribute to shaping a culture with an ethic of reparation and reconciliation, and ethic sustained by imagination, wonder, awe and compassionate response.
