SSJ Sister Karen Klimczak Center Celebrates 10 Years | Events
Dr. Christopher Stanley, professor of theology at St. Bonaventure University, will speak at the SSJ Sister Karen Klimczak Center for Nonviolence’s annual fundraiser on Sunday, April 2nd. SS. Columba & Brigid Parish (75 Hickory St.) will host the event at 3:00pm.
Dr. Stanley’s presentation, “On the Edge of Violence and Nonviolence,” will examine some key texts in all three Abrahamic religions—Judaism, Christianity and Islam—that give divine sanction to both violence and nonviolence. Followers of the religions have long struggled to make sense of these directives and to understand how they can be applied today. Some benefits and dangers of guiding our lives by these texts will be discussed.
A lifelong activist and pacifist, Dr. Stanley has traveled the world to help people explore the role of religion in contemporary social conflicts. He will call us to respond nonviolently to the challenges facing our society today.
A celebration of the 10th anniversary of the SSJ Sister Karen Klimczak Center for Nonviolence and a reception will follow the presentation.
