Focus is key. Every individual is a link in God's plan. We must ask the question through prayer where and how is God calling me to action? Each of us is one small piece in God's master web, but without each of us the web is broken. Nonviolent action means taking planned action in a nonviolent way to resolve issues of injustice and violence in our time.

Reaching Out to Your Parish: Hearing Each Other, Transforming Hearts for Action
At our conference on “Justice, Advocacy, and the Social Teaching of the Church” we asked our panel discussion members Father Kenneth Mich, Eileen Ciezki, Kari Hanson and Tom Hunt to address the topic “Transforming Hearts: Incorporating Justice into the Life of the Parish.”
They shared with us the goals of their ministry and how their parish has engaged in approaching issues of justice, what has worked well for them and what challenges they have faced. Through this discussion we hope that all of might gain ideas and encouragement on how we might begin or enhance ministries within our own parishes or organizations.
