331892_10151195105950080_1940598159_oWelcome to my occasional blog. As a PhD student in Peace Studies and Theology at the University of Notre Dame’s Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, a writer, consultant, teacher, and preacher, I have a broad range of interests. My central commitment, though, is to strategic peacebuilding and I have worked predominantly with churches and other nonprofit organizations on overcoming conflict. I offer workshops and counsel on conflict management and transformation as well as confronting oppression in its various forms.

My wife, the Reverend Nanette Pitt, and I live in Akron, Ohio, where she is Senior Minister of First Congregational Church of Akron.
