This week, Jon Huckins kicks off the series “Open” by speaking about peace and how we can move toward the resolution of fear, stigma, and stereotype in our culture. Jon describes peace as the holistic repair of broken relationships and encourages us to see our broken relationships not as problems to be solved, but as opportunities for transformation and chances to be ministers of reconciliation.

June 4 & 5, 2016 – Peacemaking – Todd Deatherage

6.3-4 Peacemakers_FC.006.jpeg

“Every time in history that men and women have been able to respond to the events of their world as an occasion to change their hearts, an inexhaustible source of generosity and new life has been opened, offering hope far beyond the limits of human prediction.”
-Henri Nouwen

Todd invites us to understand more about the kingdom of God and how we are all not only invited into it, but that Jesus calls us to be agents of his kingdom in the world by acting as peacemakers. He shares about how the practices of peacemaking create hope and open up possibilities where none were thought possible, and leaves us with many of the tools needed to act as peacemakers in our own community and beyond.
