Sermon on the mount
Church and Peace wishes to empower communities of Christ's followers today to be places where his peace is lived out in a visible way...
... to respond to the call in the Sermon on the Mount to seek God's kingdom and righteousness and to proclaim in word and deed God's good news of reconciliation and peace - defining tasks for the Church and its members.
... to embody this kingdom as did Jesus Christ in his life, death and resurrection:
· healing and transforming broken lives
· confronting violence with the power of love
· restoring just relations - personal, societal, with God and Creation
· challenging unjust systems and structures
... to live this vision as a committed body of believers which strives to act as an agent of God's love by developing life-affirming alternatives to violence in all areas of life.
