Highlighting Some Peace Blogs
From time to time, I will highlight some of the blogs I read on my blogroll. Here are three that focus on peacemaking–a passion of mine that I believe to be central to the very meaning of the Christian life.
Peace Blog is the Paul Kawika Martin’s blog for Peace Action, the largest grass-roots peace organization in America. Paul Kawika Martin is the Executive Director of Peace Action. Peace Action focuses on positive actions for peace, “just peacemaking” practices.
The Quakers’ Colonel is the blog of retired Col. Dan Smith, who, in 2002 joined the Friends’ Committee on National Legislation as military and intelligence analyst. On his blog, he taks about military spending, peace processes, intelligence matters, wars, and related matters. Remarkably, after a lifetime in the military, he does this in service of Quaker peace values.
Baptist Voices for Peace and Justice is the group blog of the Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America. Four (4) very active members of BPFNA (Mike Broadway, Prof. of Theology and Ethics at Shaw Divinity School, Frances Kelly (community organizer with Healthcare for America), Dan Schweissing, American Baptist missionary, & Ryan Price, Baptist pastor in Vermont) take turns updating this blog.
Peace Theology is the website and blog of Ted Grimsrud, who teaches theology and ethics at Eastern Mennonite Seminary in Harrisonburg, VA. This is one of the most informative sites of its kind on the web.
