For the past few weeks, I’ve been compiling material on ”just policing” and “just peacemaking” theory while I wait to hear if my paper proposal for the upcoming 5th Annual Conference on the Ethics of National Security Intelligence at Georgetown University has been accepted. The primary theorist of “just policing,” Gerald W. Schlabach — who labels himself a Mennonite Catholic (that is, a former Mennonite who became Catholic) — has a book coming out with Brazos Press in April entitled Unlearning Protestantism: Sustaining Christian Community in an Unstable Age, which, Schlabach indicates, is meant to look at what he says is the ”‘Protestant dilemma’ in ecclesiology, [that is,] how to build lasting Christian community in a world of individualism and transience”
Schabach is also the founder of Bridgefolk, which is:
a movement of sacramentally-minded Mennonites and peace-minded Roman Catholics who come together to celebrate each other’s traditions, explore each other’s practices, and honor each other’s contribution to the mission of Christ’s Church. Together we seek better ways to embody a commitment to both traditions. We seek to make Anabaptist-Mennonite practices of discipleship, peaceableness, and lay participation more accessible to Roman Catholics, and to bring the spiritual, liturgical, and sacramental practices of the Catholic tradition to Anabaptists.
