Kenneth Greet – A Life for Peace

A keen supporter of WDC’s Annual Weekend of Services and Vigils for World Peace and Disarmament and UfP September Peace Days, he always marked those observances by leading special Peace Services, encouraging other clergy to do likewise. When illhealth finally meant he could no longer attend meetings, he kept in phone contact with me, eager to know of UfP’s progress. He remained to the end a great source of moral support and encouragement [typically, he wrote peace articles for Methodist Recorder until a few months before he died!]. From 1999 he was President of Methodist Peace Fellowship.

A Methodist minister from 1947, Kenneth Greet became a leading British Church figure from 1950s, first as Methodist Church Christian Citizenship Secretary [1954-71] specialising in temperance, gambling, and family issues, then as Secretary of Methodist Conference [the General Secretary – 1971-84]. He devotedly pursued Christian Unity in UK – and globally as World Council of Churches Central Committee member [1971-75] and
Chair, World Methodist Council. In all these offices and in his worldwide preaching, he constantly urged the Churches to work for world peace, and reject war and nuclear weapons. In 1982 he publicly opposed the Falklands War, and at the St. Paul’s service marking its end, as Free Church Moderator, led prayers for both Argentinian and UK casualties – to Mrs. Thatcher’s great annoyance! Always personally very gracious, he expressed his peace convictions with great courage, tireless energy and
immense resolve. We stand hugely in his debt.
