Thursday Reflection – week 3

October 16, 2006

Our discussion on Transforming Powers was really helpful today.  It was fun hearing what other people got out of the book, and to see where people are struggling to grow.  I was particularly drawn to our small group’s discussion about Dr. Stassen’s chapters on non-violent resistance.  All of the people in my group were interested in non violent protest, but none of us really knew how to live it out.  Often times when faced with injustice we feel powerless, and feel called to do something.  Our default response is violence.  I think our group was left feeling helpless and confused.  We want to do something, we want to follow the example that Jesus has left for us, but we don’t know how.
