 Putting Mahatma Gandhi’s Approach to the Test
Are Gandhi’s teachings relevant today?

A talk on ‘Is World Peace Possible? Putting Mahatma Gandhi’s Approach to the Test’ by Philip Czachorowski will be given at the United Church in Walpole on Monday, June 24, 2013 at 7:30 PM. Mahatma Gandhi was the spiritual leader who led the non-violent campaign for Indian Independence.  Although a Hindu, his beliefs in peace and non-violence were greatly influenced by many religions including Christianity and in particular by the teachings of Jesus and the Sermon of the Mount. When we think of Gandhi in the backdrop of colonial India, it may not be obvious how his approach can be applied today. This talk will address what we have to learn from Gandhi.  The widespread conflicts and inequalities in our world suggest that we need to “give nonviolence a chance!” 

The talk is open to the public. The church is located, next to the Post Office, at 30 Common Street, Walpole, MA. The parking lot entrance is to the right of the counseling center next to the church.
