What role does faith play in the practice of nonviolence?

How can we further the rights of minorities in the world today?

This week’s reflection text is taken from Helaman 5:98-99 in Community of Christ’s version of the Book of Mormon.

“And you know also that they have buried their weapons of war, and they fear to take them up lest by any means they should sin. You can see that they fear to sin; for, behold, they will suffer themselves that they be trodden down and slain by their enemies and will not lift their swords against them, and this because of their faith in Christ.”

How is freedom gained, if it has to happen nonviolently?
