This evening will feature a dramatic reading of the court martial trial of Elbert Hostetler. Dr. Steve Nolt, senior scholar at the Young Center for Anabaptist and Pietist Studies at Elizabethtown College, will speak on peace churches and WWI, and the Conservative Anabaptist Service Program will make a presentation.
This event is in conjuncture with the exhibit, “Voices of Conscience: Peace Witness in the Great War,” which remembers the stories of people of faith who opposed the war. The exhibit examines key questions such as: Who speaks for peace in times of war? What am I willing to fight for? Is paying for war participating in war? and Who are the voices of conscience today?
The exhibit will be held in the Crossings Meeting Room at Landis Homes, 1001 East Oregon Rd, Lititz, Pa. Entrance is via the main entrance of the new Calvin G. and Janet C. High Learning and Wellness Center at Landis Homes from August 19 to September 26. It is open from 2 to 7 p.m. daily, with other hours by appointment. There will be an opening reception at 2 p.m. on August 19.
