Holy Week Faith & Resistance Retreat | April 8-11, 2009

6 pm Wednesday April 8–noon Saturday April 11, 2009

St. Stephen and the Incarnation, 16th and Newton Streets, Washington DC
The disciples, like us, don’t understand nonviolence.
When Jesus is threatened with arrest, torture and the death penalty,
the disciples ask, “Shall we strike with a sword?”
Jesus answers to the disciples then, and to us now,
“Put away the sword.”
And this is the theme of our retreat: Put away the sword. Put away our nuclear weapons, our drones, our D.U., and all our weapons of war.
