This past weekend I met an interesting woman named Sarah Thompson who works for Christian Peacemaker Teams http://www.cpt.org/. Sarah has worked in many countries of the world where conflict and tension are rampant, including Israel/Palestine, Iraq, Colombia, and some cities in the U.S.
CPT was initiated in the 1980s by Mennonites and is supported by other Christian peace denominations. From my talk with Sarah an examination of the website, I am impressed that CPT is doing this the right way and deserves more support.
I am hoping to have more conversations with Sarah and hear her opinions on the subjects and questions I am trying to cover in this blog and the associated website, https://sites.google.com/site/peacethinking/home
