I also have a background in religious studies. I'm working on a new form of micro-finance, and entrepreneurial tools, intended to help raise living standards world-wide. It's a big project on a little budget, and has political and legal implications; so if it was something that interested you, I'd love to dialogue about it.
(The most stable long term way to move beyond war, I believe, is to raise living standards dramatically for ALL people...which will probably happen anyway over many years. But my work with Selfport is designed to quicken the process.)
It is wonderful to see some one with your history of InterFaith work here. The Fellowship of Reconciliation and Beyond War have played very important roles over the last few decades. Bless you for your work and welcome to this growing and dynamic site.
