We will fight for peace, but we will do no violence.

In Memory of Glen Stassen

Today, all those who fight for peace, all those who follow the way of Jesus, lost an ally and a mentor.

After a long battle with cancer, Dr. Glen Stassen passed away today in Pasadena, CA. Dr. Stassen was a professor at Fuller Seminary, Christian ethicist, activist, and developer of Just Peacemaking — a proactive third way approach in the volley between pacifism and just war theorists.

His friend — and coauthor of the seminal book, Kingdom Ethics (2003) — David Gushee penned a tribute, writing:
For most of us who grieve today, however, Glen will be remembered as the paradigm of how one serves as a teacher-mentor. Teachers teach, of course. But Glen taught as if everything he said mattered immensely, which it really did.
