Introduction for the series

Jesus told his disciples, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.” Yet when we look at the world around us or look within ourselves, where is this peace? Peace is both gift and calling. We receive peace that calms our hearts and fears. We also remember the blessing of Jesus that calls us to make peace in our world, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.” Blessed are the Peacemakers is an eight-week online series of reflections on the blessing and calling of peace and peacemaking.
