!!Introduction to our website

This site is divided -- at least at the moment! -- into three sections. The first one is [[http://justpeace.religioused.org/Contexts/HomePage |a gathering place for various contextual issues]]. Here we are putting links to history, to various statements that specific religious communities have promulgated on peace and justice issues, to a glossary of terms, and to academic papers that we believe are pertinent.

The second section is comprised of [[http://justpeace.religioused.org/ReligiousResources/HomePage |practical resources and links to religious organizations]] that are specifically focused on peace and justice issues.

The third section is more general, and is comprised of [[http://justpeace.religioused.org/GeneralResources/HomePage |anything else people think might be useful]] that didn't fit in the first two sections (this includes peace and justice issues more generally, not necessarily seen through religious lenses).
