The Persistent Peace of John Dear

Play Download media
Join Ray for a conversation with John Dear – peace activist, author, theologian, Catholic priest, and all-around amazing man! John has worked in homeless shelters, soup kitchens, and community centers; traveled in warzones around the world, including Iraq, Palestine, Nicaragua, Afghanistan, India, and Colombia; lived in El Salvador, Guatemala and Northern Ireland; been arrested over 75 times in acts of civil disobedience against war; and spent eight months in prison for a Plowshares disarmament action. In the 1990s, he arranged for Mother Teresa to speak to various governors to stop the death penalty. In other words, John is very passionate about peace and nonviolence in the way of Jesus! This conversation is a whirlwind trip through John Dear’s life so far, as we talk about his autobiography, A Persistent Peace. Thank you John Dear for taking the time to share your life and witness for peace with us! Make sure to check out John’s website www.johndear.org, where you will find his books and much more. Also, check out www.campaignnonviolence.org where John and others are imagining a new world with dignity, justice, and peace for all!
