Posted by Erin Bechtol

In the style of “Readers’ Theater,” Inscape Ministries (Sharon Halsey-Hoover and David Hoover) portrayed Thomas Merton and Dorothy Day, two well-known Catholics who were sometimes criticized for their strong nonviolence and anti-war stances. Both could not reconcile their strong faith and prayerful lives with war. This Life Peace & Justice sponsored event drew around 70 attendees on the International Day of Peace.
