Here it is again – another story like last week from John’s gospel (John 20:19-31) when Jesus encounters the disciples after the resurrection and greets them with a word of peace. This encounter, however, doesn’t seem to calm the disciples but stirs them up. When does being a Christ-like peace bearer stir things up?
This week, consider who – individuals or organizations – bears peace and stirs things up in our world today. Explore what it might mean for you to be a peace bearer.
Amazing Creator, send your Spirit to create us anew this day.
May we be open to the transformation that Christ brings,
and then move in new ways and directions with the gospel.
