Just as the development of the praxis of the two major leaders and movements in the national struggle in America for black liberation and justice illustrate the development of an authentic praxis for ecumenical peace—a praxis that I could only observe and support as an outsider—so too can a dialogical praxis in which I was more personally involved, seeking peace between East and West in the so-called cold war, provide another authentic, though much smaller, example. Its setting in my experience was the ecumenical church, largely my United Methodist Church’s place in the National Council of Churches, yet also in the less institutionally established Christian Peace Conference (CPC), whose base was in Eastern Europe.
