Nonviolent Cincinnati will be hosting this movie and discussion night. The movie shown will be "The Narrow Path: Walking Toward Peace and Nonviolence with John Dear." Please reserve your ticket so we have an idea of how many people to expect.
John Dear is a celebrated peace activist and the author of over twenty books; he also served as a chaplain ministering to the families of those killed on September 11th at the World Trade Centre. His life story has been a journey into the radical message of the Gospel and Jesus' instruction to love our enemies. Following in the footsteps of the great apostles of nonviolence - Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., Dorothy Day, Thomas Merton, Oscar Romero and Daniel and Philip Berrigan - John Dear, who has been arrested and imprisoned over 75 times, crisscrosses the United States and the world tirelessly preaching the message of the nonviolent Jesus. Sadly, this film will upset and disturb many people. But the Gospel is disturbing, if you take it seriously. Making this film changed the lives of those who made it, and I pray it changes the lives of many who watch it. -- From the Director's note, Gerry Straub.
