The Personal and Political Dimensions of Conversion: Restorative Justice

Elaine Enns and Ched Myers begin this lecture with a reading of Paul’s Damascus Road experience as a call to restorative justice. Then they look at mediation and nonviolent direct action as flip sides of the peacemaking coin.  They conclude with a story of the conversion of a U.S. Air Force nuclear weapons specialist to a gospel vocation of peace, justice and reconciliation.

Their work is in the faith-based peace and justice movement. For information about their organization, check out Bartimaeus Cooperative Ministries.
