You Can Be a Peacemaker
With just a brief look at the news or social media, one can easily observe that people’s differing opinions and beliefs have resulted in a major rift in our social cohesion in North America. This overwhelming flood of information on issues where there is no quick fix leads many, including us at The Meeting House, to question what meaningful role we can play in breaking down the many walls that our society is so quick to build.
Jesus stated, "Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God." Jesus blesses those who play an active role in bringing peace and reconciliation to conflict and violence. Throughout the month of February, we are running a new compassion initiative to support the peacebuilding efforts of the Mennonite Central Committee as one of the ways we can practically live out Jesus' peace teachings.
