Wise words for challenging times.
My wife and I were sick to our stomach as we watched a newscast report the horror of the Boston Marathon bombings. Our hearts are heavy. We knew 2 people who were present at the marathon itself. Thankfully, they are both ok.
But it reminded me that violence is always happening. It’s as if this full scale, big impact violent event reminded me that bad stuff happens all the time. Seemingly violence has been happening forever.
It’s two competing narratives. One of violence. One of peace. One seeking revenge. One seeking to love the enemy. Each telling a radically different story. The grand call of God is that hope and peace is always there, subverting the story of violence.
That narrative calls for shalom activists.
Boston needs prayer and the presence of peace. It needs shalom activists.
Palestine needs prayer and the presence of peace. It needs shalom activists.
