Episode 1

The life of Jesus showed the spirit and substance of what nonviolence can look like. Nonviolent direct action is one aspect of nonviolence and it's different from normal political action, like voting. 

Following Jesus means seeking God’s Kingdom and righteousness. But we can’t use violence to do it. It takes deep love, creativity and faithfulness to commit to seeking change nonviolently.

We believe participating in nonviolent direct action is a faithful way of following Jesus. It's a journey that can transform your own faith even as it seeks to transform the world. 

You can watch these videos by yourself, though there are advantages to watching them together with others like a Sunday School class or a small group. Community keeps us motivated, supported and accountable.
