Faith & Life: Just War Revisited
In an age of insecurity, terrorism, and drone warfare, are the doctrines of Just War still relevant? How do these doctrines stand up to over a decade of war in Iraq and Afghanistan? Or to drone strikes in Pakistan and Yemen? Join us on Friday, November 7, at 7:30pm at GMU as we continue our Faith & Life series and consider modern answers to ancient issues--and how faith can still shape our conduct.
