Inglorious Pastors: Waging Peace in a World of War

DVD, 2010, 180 min
CommonWord is shocked and saddened by Bruxy Cavey's ministerial sexual misconduct. We unreservedly condemn his actions, and stand in solidarity with all victims of sexual violence.

We have determined to remove Cavey's books from our shelves (and any links to related online content). We do so to signal our condemnation of his actions; to acknowledge the raw wounds that his choices open in the lives of victims of sexual violence; and our need for patient, ongoing reflection in life situations imbued with dissonant complexity. We view this choice as a necessary, provisional time of lament as we acknowledge this brokenness.

In the sixteenth century a renegade group of Christian leaders rebelled against their own religion. These dissenters called for the church to separate from the state and to reject all forms of violence. They waged their war with weapons of peace, and many died for their radical cause of calling Christians back to the way of Christ. Known as “Anabaptists”, they dared to think that Jesus should be taken seriously when he taught his followers to turn the other cheek, love their enemies, and do good to those who hate them. Join us as we learn practical lessons for how we live today – lessons from the teachings of Jesus, embodied in the lives of these Inglorious Pastors.
