Ian M. Falconer, a Scot based in Jerusalem, has written a blog expressing his thoughts on events in the US and beyond. He reflects on how we are called to be active peacemakers and says:
- Being a peacemaker is about making a long-term commitment to healing, justice, and honesty. Peace does not simply happen, it requires the work of everyone nationally and internationally, it requires adherence to international law, above all it requires love of everyone.
- Being a peacemaker is about working together, it’s about taking the time to listen to what those around you are saying, not simply assuming what is being said but really taking the time to listen and understand.
- Being a peacemaker is about all of us – we must stand together, as one body in Christ.
