yoder powell funeral home – The Little

The Little Book of Trauma Healing: When Violence Strikes and Community Is Threatened (Little Books of Justice and Peacebuilding)
The Little Book of Trauma Healing: When Violence Strikes and Community Is Threatened (Little Books of Justice and Peacebuilding)
Following the staggering events of September 11, 2001, the Center for Justice and Peacebuilding at Eastern Mennonite University was asked to help, by officials overseeing clean-up and recovery efforts in New York. The staff and faculty proposed Strategies for Trauma Awareness and Resilience (STAR) programs in response. In the years since then, those ideas have been put into practice, re-tooled, and used successfully again and again. Now, STAR director, Carolyn Yoder, has shaped the strategies and learnings from those experiences into a book for all who have known terrorism and threatened security. This Little Book addresses communities and societies caught in cycles of victimhood and/or violence. . . in other words, those of us who have been traumatized by terrorists or tsunamis, by unsafe and ongoing occupation or oppression. This Little Book looks at: – Breaking free to safety; – Taking risks successfully; – Recognizing our interdependence. Says Yoder, “The primary premise and challenge of this Little Book is that traumatic events and times have the potential to awaken the human spirit and, indeed, the global family. But this requires acknowledging our own history and that of the enemy, honestly searching for root causes, and shifting our emphasis from national security to human security.” A startlingly helpful approach.

The War of the Lamb: The Ethics of Nonviolence and Peacemaking
John Howard Yoder was one of the major theologians of the late twentieth century. Before his death, he planned the essays and structure of this book, which he intended to be his last work. Now two leading interpreters of Yoder bring that work to fruition.

The book is divided into three sections: pacifism, just war theory, and just peacemaking theory. The volume crystallizes Yoder’s argument that his proposed ethics is not sectarian and a matter of withdrawal. He also clearly argues that Christian just war and Christian pacifist traditions are basically compatible–and more specifically, that the Christian just war tradition itself presumes against all violence.
