Good Friday Stations of Justice, Peace, Nonviolence, and Love of Humanity
All Participants will adhere to the discipline of Nonviolence [“of fist, tongue, and heart”, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., whose memory and legacy we honor on the anniversary of his murder April 4, 1967]
LUKE 23: 33 – 49
Stations of Justice, Nonviolence, Peace, and the Love of Humanity
Reader: 1st Station: Pilate Condemns Jesus to Death. Betrayed, denied, tortured, facing death, Jesus knew where he stood and what he faced. He faced the Cross, a means of execution, a symbol of imperial rule, of Rome’s might, an announcement of the empire’s will to maintain itself the only way it can: violence and war. We remember Jesus, born homeless, who died the tortured death of a political prisoner by the all-powerful ruling hand of empire of his time. What we see depends on where we stand. We stand, mourn, and see the cross of empire and war today, Lockheed Martin. We stand for peace.
All: For the Love of Humanity! No-War. Stop Lockheed Martin.
Stations continue to 12th Station, Jesus Dies on the Cross
Tolling the Bell of Peace [Good Friday, April 15, 2022]
Today we toll a bell for justice, nonviolence, love, and humanity.
We stand against the outrages, crimes, and the utterly lethal greed of Lockheed Martin. From the depths of our hearts we decry today’s messages of hate, greed, and violence. As we honored Dr. King on the anniversary of his assassination, just 11 days ago, we remembered his ‘evil triplets of American society: Racism, Greed, and Militarism’, how he considered “justice as love in public” and his message of “unarmed truth and unconditional love.” We continue, as we must, our protest of Lockheed Martin, overwhelmingly the world’s #1 war profiteer and arms manufacturer, and U.S.’s #1 nuclear weapons contractor. All: Peace, Peace, Peace, NO-WAR, For the Love of humanity!
(ALL) The Bell of Peace tolls on this Good Friday a prayer for all the war dead and dying in Ukraine, for the children, the earth, humanity, and the future.
The bell sounds an appeal that America may one day be forgiven for its racist history of war-making, nuclear weaponry, the dangers of NATO expansion, and the endless celebration of greed and militarism around the world.
Today, the bell of peace tolls for all the victims of Vladimir Putin’s vicious invasion and war on Ukraine, the countless refugees, the unrelenting bombing, the insane threats to unleash the-hell-on earth of nuclear weapons.
The Bell of Peace, however, also intones an even louder steadfast commitment to peacemaking and love.
The tolling of the bell, on this Good Friday is, for us all, exemplified in Russians and Ukrainians resisting war, choosing radical hope in the nonviolent struggle for peace and future.
World Without End, Amen.
