The peacemaking committee of Swarthmore Presbyterian Church will host a peacemaking conference at the Swarthmore Presbyterian Church on Friday, October 18, Saturday, October 19 and Sunday, October 20. The title of the conference is Conflict, Faith, Peace. It will be led by Dr. Patrick Henry, a native of Dallas, Texas, whose degrees are from Harvard, Oxford, and Yale. He also taught in the Religion Department at Swarthmore College from 1967 to 1984, during which time he was an elder at Swarthmore Presbyterian Church.

The goal of the conference is to portray peacemaking and the life of faith in a way that neither masks the ambiguities nor despairs at the difficulties, so that people are inspired and energized for effective and sustained individual and collective effort.
