This is a church for pacifists for whom the Quakers might be
too structureless and the Mennonites too strict. It could exist
in one of two forms (or maybe both: a specifically Christian
denomination ("Church of Christ the Peacemaker") or a more
ecumenical/universalist form. Readings at services
either case be drawn from a wide range of peacemakers
throughout history - Christ, Gandhi, King, Peace Pilgrim, etc.
etc. Individual churches would also offer training to the
public in conflict resolution, as well as mediation services and
shelter for victims of domestic violence.
