The Catholic Commission of Summit County hosts a monthly book club to read and discuss books on Catholic Social Teaching and current issues. We have read Compassion by Henri’ Nouwen, Tattoos on the Heart by Fr. Greg Boyle, S.J. and most recently discussed Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson.
August’s book is The Moral Imagination: The Art and Soul of Building Peace by John Paul Lederach. Lederach has worked in the field of mediation and conciliation throughout the world. “In this book, he poses the question, ‘How do we transcend the cycle of violence that bewitch our human community while still living in them?’ He sees our the work of peacemaking a religious vocation as meditates on his own calling and the spirituality that moves ordinary people to reject violence and seek reconciliation.” (book jacket)
