What does it mean to put the gospel message of peace into practice?
The DVD has been prepared for use with the study book, which contains a compelling collection of interviews with Uniting Church members around Australia sharing their real-life stories and reflections about putting peace into practice in their lives.
The study book is a resource for Uniting Church congregations, study groups, and individuals who want to examine the Christian call to peacemaking and explore how each of us can practice peace in our lives. Peace and reconciliation are central to the Christian gospel, yet are often difficult to achieve in the world.
The study book explores peace on all levels, starting with the foundation of peace in scripture, and then exploring the meaning of peace and how it can be lived out in our relationship with God, interpersonal relationships, church and the local community, the broader society, and in harmony with the environment. Consisting of scripture passages and reflections, questions for reflection and discussion, practical ideas for action, further reading suggestions, as well as prayers, songs, and activities for use in group settings.
A vital tool for strengthening the tie between faith and works in living out our Christian discipleship, this resource is a call to action for all of us.
