Peace-making

(placeholder)
(placeholder)

pacifism & a pursuit of peace is tough...

Such spiritual practices are not about cowardice or shirking one’s patriotic duty. For those who sense G_d is calling them into such a life, their future will include a great need for bravery, wisdom, and a vision for deep “love of country” in ways that are often challenging.


Historically, the authentically Christian communities of the church have stood beside such peaceful patriots, offering them spiritual support, guidance and affirmation as they seek to clearly watch and listen for G_d in ways that are not always supported by the secular political machinery of society.  


The links on the left side of this page are intended to help guide those who hear G_d calling them onto the sacred path of life-long peace-making, as well as to let them know that the church seeks to stand by these brave Christian women and men along the way.
