Reconciliation, Restoration, Peacemaking

As this summer of continued injustice and news of violence swamps our sensibilities it is heartening to know that the voices who can steady  us on paths of restoration can be found at Phillips, both in person and in the recorded word.  To the right is a tiny sampling of the works that can be found in our library.

Sandy Shapoval, Director of the Library


“You have been educated for ministry in a divided, deeply wounded, and violent world. I charge you, therefore, to be peacemakers and seekers of justice, gentle but firm in your rejection of that which demeans and dehumanizes and destroys the sustainability, of life on earth, patient but insistent that evil will not prevail but rather the ;coming reign of God.”

-Don Pittman, from “Dean’s Charge to Graduates,” 2001.
