Waging Peace in a Divided World lecture by Jer Swigart

 
Date:
Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2017
 
Time:
7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
 
Description:
Jer Swigart is the co-founding Director of a peacemaking organization called the Global Immersion project that cultivates everyday peacemakers by immersing them in global conflict. Jer earned his undergraduate degree from a Christian liberal arts university similar to Whitworth and he earned his Masters of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary. His engagement within national and international conflicts has formed him into a guide for the church as it seeks to leverage its influence as an instrument of peace in our world.

Jer will be speaking from his new book, Mending the Divides: Creative Love in a Conflicted World. Using biblical and current-day illustrations of everyday peacemakers, Jer equips disciples of Jesus to move toward conflict and seek the restoration of our relationships, our communities, and our world, offering practical steps to engage in the kingdom-building work of waging peace.
