Document Interrogating and Redefining Power - A theological consultation
If violence is an exercise of power over the powerless or a retaliation to such, what makes power prone to abuse? Why do people not only fear but also aspire for sources of violent power? Why do some religious traditions view violence as a divine attribute? How is power understood and exercised within our churches?

Interrogating and redefining power is crucial to our attempts to overcome violence.
