Transformation: The Power of Nonviolence to Change Our World

the power of nonviolence to change our world

On September 27, 2022, Pastor Adam presented at the Global Summit of Humanity Rising. The summit’s theme was Transformation: The Power of Nonviolence to Change Our World: The Legacy – Jesus, Gandhi and King – Nonviolence Through the Ages. Adam’s talk, “Girard, Jesus, and Gandhi: Toward Nonviolent Love in Action”, focused on René Girard’s mimetic theory which emphasizes how Jesus modeled nonviolence which inspired Gandhi and King in their work.

The goal of the Summit is to create an international coalition strong enough to transform conversations that matter into actions that make a difference.

Humanity Rising represents a movement of people and organizations coming together to take counsel on how to leverage the crisis of the coronavirus pandemic into an opportunity for human renewal and increased resilience to future challenges.
