Blessed are the Peacemakers


This course will address the issue of anger, hatred, and violence in God’s name. Although it is common to be driven by anger or fear, Jesus acted out of neither. As his followers, we are faced with a choice: will we live life his way, or will we be shaped by the dominant culture around us?  In this course, we will examine scriptures in both the Old and New Testaments to help shape our response. In addition to the Bible, we will also use Brant Hansen’s book, Unoffendable.
