By the serendipitous chance that truthfully discloses the patterning of God, and which we Christians therefore think of in a providential way, I came upon J. R Burkholder's reflections on the theology and practice of peace church recently. Burkolder is also an advocate of the work of Rene Girard in Mennonite circles. I was fortunate to have a chance to talk to him during my sabbatical in 2002. Incidentally, Ekklesia and the Anabaptist Network UK have a peace church study guide on the web. I should also mention these resources on pacifism from Anabaptist sources. I am personally pleased that part of this tradition has moved on from non-resistance to non-violent resistance.
