The Peace Testimony and the World Wars

This class will attempt to provide a quick introduction to Quaker beliefs related to the peace testimony. It will use the world wars as case studies in order to get participants to talk about what value the peace testimony has had and continues to have in our lives. The historical basis of the course is also intended to provide a sense of heritage and continuity with past Quakers.
