Brian McLaren: Meeting for Peace

“It is possible that as we gather in public on Friday as witnesses for peace, leaders of various nations and militant groups will be meeting in secret, hatching new plans for war. If that’s the case – and it probably will be – how much more important our gathering will be. And since too many people are plotting violence in all its forms, how important it is for all people of faith to gather regularly, Sunday by Sunday or whatever day it may be, to encourage one another and stimulate one another toward love and good deeds. Perhaps this is how we should see all our gatherings for worship, fellowship, teaching, and prayer – as peace groups meeting to plot goodness and prayerfully conspire for the common good and contagious peace in our homes, neighborhoods, nations, and world.”
