Ken Butigan Shares the Third Way of Nonviolence

There is violence, there is passivity, and then there is a third way; active nonviolence. Not just the philosophy and methodology of giants like Martin Luther King, Jr. or Gandhi, it is a fundamental worldview, a way of life, and a choice for each of us. Unlike passivity, it calls for courageous engagement and determined resistance to confront evil with the weapons of love and truth alone. Most importantly, it works.
– By Joanna Thurmann – The Valley Catholic

Pace e Bene’s Ken Butigan recently spoke at the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University in California to share the important message of nonviolence to those in the university community and surrounding area.

The local Catholic newspaper, The Valley Catholic, reported on the event stating that “Butigan challenged the audience to imagine the transformation that is within our reach, and to get engaged.”

Some clearly heard the message as certain audience members participated, “along with Butigan, in a peaceful prayer vigil in front of Mission Church the following day, calling for an end to R.O.T.C. on campus.”

Be sure to read the entire article here, and consider hosting Ken Butigan or other Pace e Bene speakers for your event!
