This joint project organised by Fellowship of Reconciliation, The Church of Scotland, Anglican Pacifist Fellowship, Justice & Peace Scotland , the Scottish Episcopal Church and Pax Christi, will look at ways in which Christians and other faith communities are developing nonviolence as a way forward and explore how Christians in Scotland can embrace Gospel nonviolence at personal, church and society levels. It takes inspiration from the Catholic Nonviolence Initiative which is helping to shape thinking within the Catholic Church in cooperation with the Vatican.
