“Blessed Are the Peacemakers”

Mediation and Reconciliation Skills for the Church

In Blessed Are the Peacemakers scholars and theologians from the LWF Latin America and the Caribbean and North America offer churches their experience of “practical approaches to dialogue” for change and reconciliation in the church and its community. They discuss several topics including how God’s word inspires a vision of equity and inclusion that can help to prevent conflict. They also explore Christian responsibility for promoting peace in cities through politics and dialogue, and how welcoming communities and hospitality can be nurtured in spite of the fear of “the stranger.”
