The Rebirthing of God: Reconnecting with Spiritual Practice and Nonviolence, by Don Portwood, Lyndale United Church of Christ, Minneapolis, MN  10/19/14
(the 3rd of a 4 part series)

 Last week I finished up with reconnecting with Compassion and this week I’m reversing the order in the book and beginning with reconnecting with Nonviolence. 

 Philip writes about two modern day advocates of non-violence.  The first, George MacLeod, the founder of the modern day Iona community in Scotland, who was deeply committed to the vision and practice of nonviolence, so much that he would often begin his conversations not with the normal, “Hello, how are you?”, but with the challenging question, “Do you believe in nonviolence?” 

Born in 1895, raised in an aristocratic Scottish family, he became an officer in the British army and saw action at the Battle of Ypres in 1917.  Traveling by train close to the front lines near the end of the war, he experienced the presence of Christ within the brokenness and pain of the soldiers around him and gave himself to Christ -  understanding that to follow Christ was to follow the way of nonviolence.
