LIFE and PEACE is a ministry concerned with the spiritual and moral crisis of our time. Its purpose is to be a voice for peace and non-violence, to challenge assumptions about who we are as human beings and to take a fresh look at the meaning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in today's world.
Jesus Christ rejected rivalry, retaliation and revenge. Based on his work and teaching, LIFE and PEACE conducts research, offers reflections, lectures, and seminars. For an understanding of the human being, the ministry relies on the anthropology of René Girard.
If love and non-violence are to be the answers to the crucial moral and political questions of our time, we need to discover those things that make for peace. Given the gravity of the hour, spreading the love-ethos of peace by inspiring others to forego resentment, and to engage in non-violent communication, and resistance to the forces that propagate violence, is urgent. I have dedicated this webiste to this vision — in hope.
