The Bible reminds Christians that God reconciled the world to himself through Christ Jesus and he has now given us the ministry of reconciliation as ambassadors of the kingdom of God. This is strengthened by the words of Jesus himself, when he said, “Blessed are the peace makers because they will be called the children of God,” (Matthew 5:9). The Church is a source of power – subversive power – to transform the world by virtue of it being the salt and the light of the world. The Sermon on the Mount is a practical lesson of how Jesus instructed us, as his ambassadors, to operate in our assignments of duty here on earth. This course provides the Christian peace practitioner with the capacity and creativity needed to build peace in communities. This is critical and necessary for Christian peace practitioners, as role players in conflict management. If conflict is unavoidable, then peace is a choice we all need to make.
