John Dear, Catholic priest, longtime peace activist and, more recently, a global warming warrior, has recently published a book, They Will Inherit the Earth: Peace and Nonviolence in a Time of Climate Change.
He weaves together concepts from the Sermon on the Mount, Laudato Si, building peace and nonviolence. He sees a need for a global movement to create a culture of peace and nonviolence. Campaign Nonviolence is such a group. This group launched a National Week of Action consisting of marches, rallies, vigils, fasts and festivals across our nation.
