May we serve others through reconciliation

The Peace Pulpit: I pray that all of us will begin to try ... to become more like Jesus, be converted, follow his example, and change situations of hatred and violence into situations of love and goodness.


Heal our world by reaching out with love

The Peace Pulpit: "We all are aware of the need ... of people who are oppressed, people who need to have justice done for them, people who are hungry, people who are homeless, people who are refugees."


Follow Jesus who rejects violence, returns love for hate

The Peace Pulpit: "Violence is a lie. It goes against everything we are as people made in the image and likeness of God who is love. So it's a lie when we perpetrate violence or hate.​"


To follow Jesus, we must change our lives profoundly

The Peace Pulpit: Jesus says the reign of God is at hand, but how do we enter into it? How do we share with Jesus in bringing it about, living under the dynamic power of God's love?
