You might recall a bumper sticker that reads, “No Justice, No peace — Know Justice, Know Peace.” I’ve also seen the Christian version of it that says, “No Jesus, No Peace — Know Jesus, Know Peace.” Jesus is often called the Prince of Peace. But what kind of peace are we talking about? It seems that everywhere one looks there is scant evidence of peace. And despite my belief there are far more good and peacemaking things going on in the world than bad things, there still are violence, disruption, contention, polarization, and injustice.
Where is the Prince of Peace when we need him?
