More and more evangelism has become understood as a Christian activity. But the world is Greek and the activity ecumenical. Peace is possible. Peace is desirable. Peace is what we were born for.
That’s certainly news to start spreading. Disregard the media’s addiction to bad news and horrifying stories. Let’s concentrate instead on how neighbors respond when tragedy occurs and how we can make a communal difference when change is needed. Let’s tell the stories of how we saw two friends laughing immoderately in a restaurant or sitting in silent contemplation of a beautiful sunset. Let’s tell of couples who get along and travelers who made friends for a lifetime in a place very far from home.
Let’s spread the good news of Peace insistently. Let’s build a hunger for the good news.
