Becoming Peacemakers in a Culture of Violence

Tags: Bible Studies

The 2021 youth curriculum by Jay Godfrey, Transformative Education and Training specialist for United Methodist Women, leads youth through eight one-hour sessions that explore our experience with violence at all levels of our society and how youth can become peacemakers as an expression of their faith.

As children of God, we are compelled to counter the forces of violence in our communities and in our world with actions grounded in love of God, neighbor, and self. What that looks like for us individually and collectively is the question at the heart of this curriculum. The sessions feature interactive Bible studies that are designed to create space for participants to think theologically about the root causes of violence and about “becoming peacemakers in a culture of violence.'' The Bible studies also serve to anchor and reinforce the activities that explore how violence in the lives of youth stems from oppression.

Adaptations for conducting the sessions on a virtual meeting platform are provided throughout.
