Peacemaking is anger at injustice
And choosing to heal instead of punish

Peacemaking is the war against hatred,
Judgment and apathy, harming none.

Peacemaking is entering into another’s life
By listening to their story

Peacemaking is welcoming the outcast
And creating a safe place for them

Peacemaking comes from inner peace
Inner peace comes from silence

Peacemaking is making a plan for the needy
In order to help them thrive

Peacemaking is choosing the one-down
In order to support others

Peacemaking is confronting the wrongdoer
And forgiving them

Peacemaking is living for oneself
By living for others

Peacemaking is rejecting rejection,
Judging judging and turning away from apathy.

Peacemaking is standing with the outcast
By yourself

Peacemaking is creating a community
Of the hated and the lovers

Peacemaking is healing one’s own soul
By restoring others

Peacemaking is Jesus on the cross
Bringing God into this world through surrendering oneself
