Compassionistas.net is a place where we can find, share and develop resources for nonviolent resistance to unjust powers: resources shaped by faith and tested in community.

 

My name's Keith Hebden and I am the Seeking Justice adviser for Mansfield Deanery and the author of "Seeking Justice: The Radical Compassion of Jesus". This website is being developed to support those who want to find ways to build a new world in the shell of the old one in their neighbourhoods.

 

Our hope is that the content will continually be updated as members of the community, subscribers, and Justice Organisers, share their thoughts and ideas by emailing them to me.

 

Another world is possible.
