Can there really be peace? This Christmas we will seek to keep our minds "stayed on" our Prince of Peace, so that we can be kept in perfect peace (see Isaiah 26:3-4). In the New Year, let us actively pursue peace through The Peace Initiative.
If I have a "theme" to my teaching ministry, it probably would be "The Judgment of Charity." Constrained by the love of God and the example of Christ, I believe a reconciled relationship with Jesus must work out in the active, intentional and prayerful pursuit of peace with others, especially fellow Christ-followers.
