Yellow ribbons! Flags flying! Letters and packages to the soldiers! School rallies for war! No wonder children were confused during the Persian gulf War. Their parents hardly knew what to say, even though many were raised to hate war.

This book leads upper elementary children and their parents to understand Jesus' path to peace and to take the next steps on it. both generations can learn together.

Six sessions center on these themes:
  • Jesus came to bring peace
  • God's children love enemies
  • We trust God alone
  • Peace is God's vision
  • God created all peoples
  • We make peace
Each session has dialogue about God and the Bible, stories about peacemakers, biblical dramas, and helps for parents. Appendixes present valuable stimulation for family and congregational peace education. Being a peacemaker is much more than saying no! to war. It is saying YES! to life in Jesus and continuing on the path of peace.
