Waging Peace

Misunderstanding and conflict between Muslims and Christians is rampant and sadly growing. Peace in the Middle East? Never! This is part of today’s story but not the entire picture. While news headlines often feature the bad news, this drowns out the many, and I would add predominantly good news stories that I experience every day in my relationships with Muslims and in Israel-Palestine. The bad news is often exacerbated by a large megaphone grabbed by those who set fires of misunderstanding and prejudice, “othering” each other as they promote more conflict instead of seeking truth and making peace. There is stuff that happens. For sure. Extremists on all sides, in all quarters of the globe seek to hijack basic human rights, or the message of faithful adherents who find God calling us to peacemaking instead of living in enmity and fear of each other. But that's not the whole story.
