Being a Faithful Church 2 Document (2010): 'Peace Church' as 'Pacifist Church'
In this second step we want to apply some of the principles of discernment to one of the themes that was identified, namely being a Peace Church. We trust that this can function as a helpful model for how other (many) issues can be addressed in the church.
It is important to emphasize and underline that the focus is to strengthen our capacity to discern God's will; it is not to resolve the particular case-study we are using to "practice."
