Abstract
This study gathered information from Church of the Brethren pastors about their experiences representing the Brethren peace position in their congregations. This was considered a fruitful window through which to examine the state of the peace position today. A questionnaire was sent to 228 Brethren pastors. One hundred seventeen responded. The findings revealed that most congregations are not experiencing significant conflict over the position, but a majority of pastors are uncomfortable with the current status quo. Six concrete recommendations for changing peace demographics in the Church of the Brethren emerged from the data.
