Across the Room: A Conversation on Global Violence and Peacemaking


You can't read or listen to the news without hearing that our world is plagued with strife. From protests that become violent to civil unrest, it seems that people cannot engage in conversation without coming to blows. With so many conflicts around the world, there's even more finger pointing in the midst of it all. Scripture suggests that God wants us to be a peaceful presence in the world, but we can't even seem to do that among our own friends and families. How are we to be peaceful in the midst of injustice and such political strife? Join us this week as Bethany Anderson shares some helpful ways to create peace both locally and globally. You don't want to miss this last Across the Room conversation!
