Incidentally, on this point, I think there are three ways it relates:

	1.) They both appeal to the American "find a program that solves my  
problems" mentality.

	2.) They are both relatively superficial in their small group, etc.,  

	3.) They work from a business mindset that we need x program to draw  
members, y program to insure we aren't liable if we do something  
wrong, etc.

	That said, while I'm not a huge fan of Purpose-Driven and think it  
comes with some fundamental misassumptions, I don't think PDC is  
dangerous. Peacemakers, on the other hand, provides -- even if it  
isn't intended to provide -- weapons for abuse. It's sort of like when  
a country decides they are going to make nuclear energy. They can do  
more with the tools, too.
