Welcome to our Religica Response to Violence
This resource, created in cooperation with Seattle University School of Theology and Ministry and the Parliament of the World’s Religions, is a free resource developed for use by individuals and communities on responding to the challenge of violence in our world.
This multi-media resource is rich with videos, articles, podcast interviews from influencers around the world, and provides a roll-up-our-sleeves guide for responding to violence in our communities. Study alone or in groups; the resource is ready for you to explore.
In the Month of May, Religica Theolab created a special Response to Violence Newsletter, addressing the horrific acts of gun violence across the nation.
Addressing Violence as a Society
How Are We Called to Respond to the Recent Acts of Violence?
In this newsletter, you can find the following:
- A Resource from our Theological Laboratory focusing on a multiethnic and multireligious understanding of violence, its causes, its impact in culture – and in the last module – how we can respond together toward greater healing in our own communities.
- Two podcasts with leaders from the Tree of Life Synagogue (U.S.) and Al Noor Mosque (New Zealand) who reflect upon and respond to a version of this question: “Given the experiences you have endured, what is important for local communities to remember in times of violence and trauma?”
- GoFundMe links for those local communities directly impacted by violence and supported financially by those communities who are requesting assistance.
