'No warhorses, no more chariots, no more war'

The Peace Pulpit: Jesus was so clear that he rejected violence for any reason whatsoever. But we somehow have neglected this teaching over the centuries.

Recognize the body of Jesus in one another

The Peace Pulpit: Look at that person and see Jesus, not the host. Yes, Jesus is present, but even more important, in our brothers and sisters, especially those who are in need. 

What's that good news we're going to witness to?

The Peace Pulpit: When people see us filled with love and reaching out in love, making our community a community of love, people begin to understand who God is.

God has made a universal covenant with people everywhere

The Peace Pulpit: The feast of Pentecost is a very important feast. You and I as people of God and members of the church have entered into this covenant with God through Jesus.
