web Christian Peacemaker Teams
"Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) arose from a call in 1984 for Christians to devote the same discipline and self-sacrifice to nonviolent peacemaking that armies devote to war. Enlisting the whole church in an organized, nonviolent alternative to war, today CPT places violence-reduction teams in crisis situations and militarized areas around the world at the invitation of local peace and human rights workers. CPT embraces the vision of unarmed intervention waged by committed peacemakers ready to risk injury and death in bold attempts to transform lethal conflict through the nonviolent power of God’s truth and love."

Project Ploughshares promotes disarmament and demilitarization, the peaceful resolution of political conflict, and the pursuit of security based on equity, justice, and a sustainable environment."

Growing out of the tradition of 'speaking truth to power' this project will offer resources, opportunities for personal action, social networking and up-to-date information on issues that advocates and public officials are facing. The message of God’s Renewed Creation is urgent and anticipates our responses in the form of transforming changes in our personal, community, public, and global behavior."
