What does it mean to be followers of Jesus in the way of peacemaking? Some Christians see 'just war' as permissible on the path to peace; others believe that war is forbidden. In seeking a fresh approach rooted in practice rather than theory, Ekklesia's Simon Barrow has a conversation with Jean Harrison of Bloomsbury Baptist Church about her experience with ecumenical accompaniment in Israel-Palestine, looking at how nonviolent interventions 'on the ground' in situations of conflict can challenge and change our received ideas about peace and justice.

Questions of war and peace are sometimes seen by Christians as somewhat separate from core gospel convictions, and are pigeon holed as issues upon which we will differ 'on ethical grounds'. In conversation with Ruth Gouldbourne, Ekklesia's Simon Barrow questions this approach. Do the commitments we make in baptism have implications for our handling of conflict inside and outside the church community? What if refusing to kill was seen as a distinguishing mark of Jesus' followers in the face of religiously-sanctioned violence?

An opportunity to listen, discuss and share your own experience.
