Who We Are
Rev. John P. Willis – Founder
John is a computer software developer and musician from New Mexico. He studies and writes about spiritual, philosophical, political, and cultural topics, often in collaboration with friends. Ordained as a minister in the Universal Life Church, John’s religious background is storied. He was baptized in the Episcopal church, and–punctuated with ventures into Judaism and Japanese Shinto religions–has been involved in many denominations, from Presbyterian to Southern Baptist to Roman Catholic. Frustration with the inconsistent applications of Jesus’ principles in these denominations has led him on a long journey of study and reflection. His world view fuses the teachings of Jesus with many philosophical and political principles he has gleaned from his studies and ventures into different cultures and views; Sola Pacem reflects his current understanding of God and the world at any point along this developing journey.
