During Holy Week, two different approaches to peacemaking come into conflict. What if we've adopted the wrong one?
Jesus wept as he said, "If only you knew what makes for peace," at the start of Holy Week. From that moment until a week later, when he declared, "Peace be with you," Jesus spent each day confronting injustice, calling out oppressors, and fighting for peace.
But what if we still don't know how Jesus makes peace, even though we're all familiar with the events of Holy Week? What if we've actually embraced a different approach to peacemaking, one that justifies killing enemies and includes nailing criminals to crosses, despite clinging to the cross of Christ for our salvation?
We urgently need to reclaim the radical vision of peacemaking that Jesus embodied throughout Holy Week. We also need to be trained in his method of peacemaking. So, let's go on a journey together day by day through Jesus' final week and discover anew why he is called the Prince of Peace.
