Fr. John Dear serves as NonViolence Outreach Coordinator for Pace e Bene. He is the author of numerous books, the most recent, “They Will Inherit the Earth: Peace and NonViolence in a Time of Climate Change.”

Founded in 1989 by the Franciscan Friars of California, Pace e Bene Nonviolence Service is now an independent, nondenominational 501©3 organization.

Pace e Bene’s name derives from St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi who used this phrase in their own time as a form of greeting, which translated from the Italian means “Peace and all good!” So much was expressed by this little phrase: May you have the fullness of well-being, may you be secure and happy; may you not want; may your dignity be respected; may the goodness in your inmost being flourish; may the world in which we live know this deep peace. It was a blessing, a hope, and a way of acknowledging the sacredness of those whom they encountered.

It is in this spirit that Pace e Bene Nonviolence Service works to mainstream peacemaking that will empower people from all walks of life to prayerfully and relentlessly engage in nonviolent efforts for the well-being of all.

    Bill Ryerson of Population Institute and Population Media Center

    In episode 112 of SLW! Podcast, we feature part one of a conversation with Bill Ryerson of the Population Institute on Crises Caused by Exploding Population.

    In episode 97 of The Common Good Podcast, we feature part two of a conversation with Bill Ryerson of the Population Media Center on Reducing Human Population through Methods That Work.

    LEE: Here’s a reminder of the enormous explosion in numbers of humans that have arrived on planet Earth recently. Today, Homo sapiens are by far the top predators on the planet. Our numbers have doubled since 1970—just 48 years ago. During the 20th century, world population grew from 1.65 billion to 6 billion. In this 21st century, the rate of growth is going down, but we’re at 7.6 billion and still going up. Still, in some countries population is going down. What are those countries doing differently? And just what are the most effective ways we’ve found to reduce human population? What would be a healthy, sustainable balance of humans with all other species?

    JERRY: I wrote an essay recently called “Options to Curb the Two Primary Drivers of the Climate Crisis: OverPopulation and OverConsumption.” I began the overpopulation conversation with my interview of John Seager, head of the Population Connection, formerly Zero Population Growth. PART 1 // PART 2

    Early June Bonus—*Bonnie Tarwater* of Church for Our Common Home: Shifting Spiritual Practices and Congregations to More Earth-Based Ways
    In the New Story of OneEarth living, religion and science are in a new relationship pursuing a mutual goal. That goal? Living with all beings in interdependent relationship that sustains life, reverses climate change, and breaks through to new social and economic systems. Now, how is this affecting houses of worship? Faith communities of all stripes? It’s the pursuit of this new interconnection between spirituality and science that led to the interview of this podcast.

    The Church for Our Common Home takes its name from Pope Francis’ encyclical, “Laudato Si’,” which has the ecological subtitle “On Care for Our Common Home.”
