For times such as these, the passions of politics can lead us to repeat the tragedies of history in the name of righting all wrongs. We decry wars in foreign lands, we must also decry the wars and rumors of wars in our own land, among our own people.
For times such as these…
And Those who are peacemakers will plant seeds and reap a harvest of righteousness. — James 3:18
The next day he visited them again and saw two men of Israel fighting. He tried to be a peacemaker. “Men,” he said, “you are brothers. Why are you fighting each other?” — Acts of the Apostles 7:26
God blesses those who work for peace, for they will be called children of God. — Matthew 5:9
Go in peace and make peace in your own heart, extend love to your neighbor, and help heal our land.
If not us, who? If not now, when?
