Have peace and mission become the "Jacob" and "Esau" of church practice?
tension exists in the church between peace/justice adn
mission/evangelism. It is a real tension, but an unneccessary one. Like
estranged siblings, peace and mission need to sit down together and work
at reconciliation, as hard as that may seem. For too long they have
been at each other's throats.
Neither has taken the time
nor effort to understand the mind of the other. Both are afraid of what
the other might do to them. Yet both are in desperate need of new
understandings. Unless the two are reconciled, the church will continue
to find itself divided into separate camps - those committed to mission
and evangelism, and those committed to peace and justice.
What hope is there for "the twain" to meet?
Peace Church, Mission Church
This booklet discusses the tension that exists in the church between peace/justice and mission/evangelism.
