This is recommended reading for anyone, in my opinion.
Here is the challenge the denomination gives to American Baptists everywhere. I firmly believe everyone could use these methods successfully:
Therefore, as a sign of our prophetic calling, we call upon all American Baptists,
American Baptist churches, and American Baptist organizations to do the following:
1. To be peacemakers, builders of God’s shalom;
2. To work for the prevention of violence, the peaceful resolution of conflicts and just reconciliation;
3. To advocate for a more responsible media;
4. To challenge ideologies, structures, politics and policies that lead to violence.
Wishing you all peace ... and the desire to work for peace.
