“Jesus Christ is a peacemaker. So, if we want to be God’s children and Christ’s disciples, we must be peacemakers too.”
“The incentive to peacemaking is love, but it degenerates into appeasement whenever justice is ignored. To forgive and to ask for forgiveness are both costly exercises. All authentic Christian peacemaking exhibits the love and justice – and so the pain – of the cross.” John R W Stott
Many charities do superb work ameliorating the consequences of war and conflict, for example, in caring for refugees, the wounded, the bereaved and orphaned. Peacemakers seeks to address the causes.
Peacemakers aspire to be catalysts for peacemaking, especially where minorities are persecuted, where justice is denied, human rights are suppressed or reconciliation is needed.
Our vision is of a world reconciled to God and where its people are at peace with one another. If you identify with our vision and purposes, we invite you to join the team. Check out the blog for the latest news on our current projects.
“They will beat their swords into ploughshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.” (Micah 4:3)
This is why we believe in radical peacemaking.
