More from Paul Rasor on 'prophetic nonviolence.'
Paul Rasor's longer essay, "Beyond Just War and Pacifism: Toward a Unitarian Universalist Theology of Prophetic Nonviolence" — from which his UU World essay "Prophetic Nonviolence" was adapted — has now been published in the Journal of Liberal Religion [pdf].
There's also a ton of material related to the congregational study/action issue on peacemaking at UUWiki. And, if you're truly dedicated to following this topic, you can listen to Paul Rasor talk with Meadville Lombard ethicist Sharon Welch and University of Colorado peace studies professor Ira Chernus [mp3]. I did, and I think it's cool that KGNU "Connections" host and UU layperson Kathy Partridge hosted the conversation — but I have to say that three smart people who agree on just about everything make for a very dull hour. It would have been more interesting if the three scholars sharpened their disagreements enough so that listeners could grasp that they are making somewhat different arguments.
