Becoming a just, peace-making church
In response to an action of the 2009 General Assembly of the Christian Church (Disciples
of Christ) to refer resolution #0919 "On War and Unity" to the Council on Christian
Unity and to the Disciples Peace Fellowship, a process was designed (called "Faithful
Conversations") in which issues of war and peace could be discussed in a non-
confrontational atmosphere of trust and respect -- without moving to a vote, and without
creating division and a sense of "winners and losers" within the family of the church. Gratitude
Building upon conversations that have taken place over the past four years in
congregations and regional settings, the Council on Christian Unity has produced a
statement that it hopes might serve as a resource for discussion of the ways in which
God's justice and peace are understood in today's world. This statement, Becoming a Just
Peace-Making Church, is now offered as a working draft to all Disciples congregations,
regions, institutions of higher education, seminaries and general ministries for study,
discussion and response; it can be found online at ccu.disiples.org.
Please send your any comments, suggestions, and response to Robert Welsh, president of
the Council on Christian Unity, at firstname.lastname@example.org
