Review for Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America, Inc., Charlotte, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Baptist Pace Fellowship of North America has crated a community concerned with non-violent solutions to conflict between persons, organizations and nations. They understand the "myth of redemptive violence" and the way that all violence breeds new violence. BPFNA provides me with a company of kindred souls seeking peace and pursuing it together in a troubled world.

BPFNA builds relationship of trust to bridge the chaos that results from the experience of injustice. Peace Fellowship provides a forum for dialogue and a company of folks committed to resolving conflict. Conducting peace training in this country, in India, and in the midst of natural and man-made disasters allows people to move beyond the blame game to a healing process.

BPFNA has dedicated leaders and volunteers who consistently respond to crisis and make a difference for peace. They provide information, leadership, and action opportunities for those wanting to make a difference for peace..

Their summer Peace Camps bring together people who share a passion for peace with resource people who have showed us and continue to show us peace paths that we can use in our commitment to peace.

The Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America truly is a Great Nonprofit. It deserves to become a favored household word for all who long for peace.

Review for Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America, Inc., Charlotte, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

More by conviction than by heritage, I am a Baptist. As a child of poverty in the Appalachian poverty belt during the Great Depression, I learned early that racism hurtss more than poverty, and injustice offends the Jesus who commands love. Since 1984 I have worked for, and often with The Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America. They have provided spiritual resources for the struggle for peace in our neighborhood and in our world. Following their publications and on the internet leads to even greater enthusiasm for schieving the "Peaeable Kingdom" envieioned by Martin Luther King, Jr. Sometimes I reject identification with Baptists who support wars and reject equality for those who are different by exclaiming, "I'm not THAT kind of Baptist." The BPFNA is a community of Baptists with which I gladly identify.
