2011 Anabaptist Peace Lectureship – Kathleen Kern

Please join us on October 8-9, 2011 for the 3rd Anabaptist Peace Lecture series held at Seattle Mennonite Church.  The featured speaker this year is Kathleen Kern, author and peace advocate who has been active with Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) since 1993. CPT offers an organized, nonviolent alternative to war and other forms of lethal inter-group conflict. It provides organizational support to persons committed to faith-based nonviolent alternatives in situations where lethal conflict is an immediate reality or is supported by public policy. CPT seeks to enlist the response of the church in conscientious objection to war, and in the development of nonviolent institutions, skills and training for intervention in conflict situations.

Kern currently lives near Rochester NY and is the author of several books including As Resident Aliens: Christian Peacemaker Teams in the West Bank, 1995-2005 (2010), In Harms Way: A History of Christian Peacemaker Teams (2009), We Are the Pharisees (1995), and When It Hurts to Live (1994). She writes a column for Mennonite Weekly Review, and has had essays appear in Tikkun magazine and The Baltimore Sun.
