“PeaceMaker” is an hour-long ceremony centered in the Christian faith in which a gun is forged into a garden tool while songs, art, stories, and scripture are shared.
Join blacksmith Mike Martin and our speaker on nonviolent communication Pastor Kurt Willems as they lead people on a journey to peace.
By the event’s end a physical representation of God’s prophecy of “beating your swords into plowshares” from Isaiah and Micah is created in actuality. People experience opportunities for healing, purpose, and a reinvigoration of imagination as a new reality is encountered in this physical representation of “forging peace.”
The PeaceMaker tour combines aspects of prior events we’ve done with Shane Claiborne and other organizations like Middle Collegiate Church in NYC. We have fine tuned it to be an invested experience for all involved.
Tickets are $15 for general admission and $7.50 for students. All are welcome regardless of ability to pay. Tickets are available through Brown Paper Tickets.
