<p>​Peace with God, peace with neighbor, peace with the world. If we are pursuing peace in those areas, we are on the right track, because that is the track Jesus modeled for us.  </p><p>The time spent in prayer and communion with God gave Jesus strength and wisdom to do his work in the world. </p><p>The time spent teaching, talking, listening to disciples, strangers, even enemies, filled his hours and show us that peacemaking is personal, intimate and relational. </p><p>The time spent confronting and challenging systems of sin and injustice show us that peace can't only be personal and intimate, but also has to be discerning of the powers and principalities that operate in the world.  <br></p><p>I'm glad the Peace and Justice Support Network is supporting, encouraging, and strengthening peacemaking in Mennonite Church USA in all three of these spheres.
