2009 MCC Peace Packet:
Jesus' Peaceful Revolution
Online Resource Series - Multiple Formats
Jesus came preaching, teaching and embodying a "revolution." When Jesus announced that the Kingdom of God had arrived, he was proclaiming that a fundamental change in the world was happening. Jesus' way of speaking, being, and relating to others turned his world upside down. His death on the cross broke the cycle of violence with loving, forgiving nonviolent resistance.
Jesus invites us to join that peaceful revolution. On Remembrance Day, our nation asks its citizens to remember those who have died through military service. Since Canada is at war in Afghanistan, there is a special focus on soldiers who are serving and fighting this current war. As followers, we remember that Jesus invites us to embody and proclaim his peaceful revolution - a new way of living in which war and violence have no part.
