*Peace Activist Speaks on His New Book*
Pax Christi El Paso will host Fr. John Dear as he presents his
ground-breaking new book, Lazarus Come Forth, How Jesus Confronts the
Culture of Death and Invites Us into the New Life of Peace.
Fr. John will speak on Thursday, May 24th at 7:00 pm, St. Pius X
Catholic Church Community Center, 1050 N. Clark, El Paso, TX 79905.  Time
for questions and answers.  Books will be available for purchase and a book
signing follows the lecture.
Fr. John explores the raising of Jesus in the Gospel of John, and
invites us to carry on Jesus’ liberating work by obeying his
commandments–to take away the stone that keeps us trapped in our violent
culture of war, to call each other out of the tombs, to unbind one another
and to set each other free to live in peace and nonviolence.
Fr. John is a Jesuit priest, peace activist and author of many books
on peace and nonviolence, and is a Nobel Peace Prize Nominee.  He served
for years as the Director of the Fellowship of Reconciliation, the largest
interfaith peace organization in the U.S., and was a coordinator of
chaplains at the Family Assistance Center in New York after 9/11/2001.
Dear writes a weekly online column for The National Catholic Reporter.
