In his Adventist Record article, “Polarisation and the Great War,” Jarrod Stackelroth asks what we can learn from the violent history of World War I. His thoughts center on divisions, whether nationalism on the global scene or the religious camps that pit themselves against each other.
As the world reflects on the anniversary of the end of WWI, we can also think about the divisions within our own denomination. What am I doing that extends these divisions? How can I be a bridge builder? How can I stand for what I believe and still work to build connections with people who have differing convictions?
Blessed are the peacemakers.
