Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers.” Conflict provides one of the greatest opportunities to share the Christian Gospel and apply it to life. Knowing and applying the Gospel message of forgiveness and reconciliation are two different things. Whether we are talking about everyday conflict between spouses, parents and children, friends and co-workers or higher level conflict of church fights, legal battles and political wrangling, the Gospel of Jesus Christ provides THE practical solution. The application of the Gospel requires faith, understanding and skill. The principles, behaviors and techniques of peacemaking can be taught and learned. This class is essential for anyone who desires to become a more effective student and minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness. (James 3:18)
