Training for Peace

Training for Peace

Richard Gregg and the Realignment of Pacifist Life

(p.128) 8 Training for Peace
Kingdom to Commune

Patricia Appelbaum

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter first examines the manifestations and meanings of the practices of Protestant peace activists, both before and after the paradigm shift. It then turns to a crucial text that was in many ways a reaction against the verbal character of Protestant activism, even as it retained a measure of confidence in human improvement. Richard Gregg's Training for Peace offered a new model for the “way of life” pacifists advocated. In it one sees both traditional sources and the emergence of a new understanding and practice of peacemaking. The chapter summarizes Training and considers its implications for religious thought, the body, folk arts, and ritualization.
