RS 578 Overview
This course addresses the Franciscan value of "peacemaking" in the Franciscan tradition. The lives of St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi provide the foundation from which the tradition expresses its commitment to creating a peaceful society. The practical and discussion-oriented format of the seminar integrates ideas drawn from Franciscan theology and spirituality with opportunities for observing and modeling ways to create peace in a variety of circumstances. Various venues -- including individuals, parishes, schools, social justice organizations -- offer opportunities for observation of best practices in peacemaking. Academic resources for creating a peaceful community will be made available to complement the opportunity for practical experience.
