A Message from Allison:
      Often Christians delegate peacemaking to committed activists  rather than embracing it as a “holy obligation” for all of us, as Henri Nouwen suggests.  Episcopal Peace Fellowship has existed on the fringe of The Episcopal Church for the past 75 years rather than as a pillar of the church because of this mentality.  But last week there was a shift in our Episcopal thinking.   Last week in Oklahoma City,  220 Episcopal brothers and sisters (including 34 bishops), gathered to reclaim Jesus’ message of peace and love.  We gathered as experienced peacemakers and as individuals new to the conversation.  We gathered because we believe The Episcopal Church should offer a unified voice against the epidemic of violence in our country.
