“The Opportunity of Conflict: Practicing Everyday Peace”
Five minutes on our smart phones and we are again confronted with theconflicted reality of our country and world. As followers of Jesus, do we throwup arms and walk away or roll up our sleeves and join God in healing our brokenworld? The work of peacemaking is often stigmatized as something soft andidealistic reserved for political power brokers or those on the fringes ofsociety. As followers of an others-oriented, enemy-loving God, it is clear thatpeacemaking is neither soft nor idealistic, but a subversive, costly way oflife that moves us toward conflict armed to heal rather than to win. What ifconflict wasn’t a problem to fix, but an opportunity for transformation? Whatare the tools we need in order to move toward conflict in our relationships,neighborhoods and world as participants in God’s mission of restoration?
