It Really Is A Matter of Conscience

The Brethren Witness/Washington Office has been busy putting together a resource packet on the Church of the Brethren’s faith belief of conscientious objection. This packet includes education resources along with a tool to help youth groups, congregations, or individuals record their personal beliefs and convictions. In addition we extend the invitation to any persons wanting to explore this issue more to give us a call or arrange for a visit to our office. The Witness/Washington Office is also available to resource district gatherings in an effort to get the word out about the importance of this issue. Resources that we offer, amongst many, are information and updates on the pending draft legislation, background information on conscientious objection, and workshops on what it is to be a conscientious objector and how to claim C/O status. For more information on conscientious objection please contact our office at (800) 785-3246. Or email
