This LINK is to a January 29, 2014, presentation by Sharon Delgado speaking at Parkside Community Church in Sacramento on “The Role of Nonviolent Direct Action in Christian Peacemaking.” In it, she shares some of the experiences and insights that have shaped her 35-year peacemaking journey, including the recently-concluded trial in which she was found guilty of trespassing onto Beale Air Force Base during a nonviolent protest against drone warfare. She also shows how Jesus’ life, teachings, actions, death, and resurrection can inspire us to follow him directly into the heart of the struggle for a transformed world.
