There are many ways of understanding and living peace, from the absence of conflict to a quiet, inner calm. God has a vision for peace, shalom, wholeness that God’s people need to keep at the forefront of mind and heart. Jesus spoke about God’s blessing for those who make peace in his Sermon on the Mount. Elizabeth Hinson-Hasty, the author of the foundational essay for this practice, observes that making peace is like climbing a mountain. There are many paths to the summit. Peacemakers need to identify the path they will navigate on their journey toward God’s peace.

Participants will discuss this book by Robb Ryerse. Empowered by the Brand New Congress initiative in 2018, this evangelical pastor and progressive Republican embarked on a long-shot, grassroots congressional campaign against Steve Womack, one of the most powerful Republican incumbents in Washington, DC. After he ultimately lost his race, Ryerse worked with the Vote Common Good campaign, traveling across the United States to help turn Congress blue. Join Dave Pack and Tom Stroud for a conversation about the book. Copies of the book are available from the church office or during the class for a suggested donation of $15.00. You can also find the book on Kindle.
