Thank you. I am humbled by and grateful for this honor.
You are my people.
In the past 7 years I have learned that there is no shortage of need for those of us following Jesus Christ’s call to be peacemakers.
When terrible things happen, peace is stolen from us. Most people want to build peace back into their lives nonviolently for themselves and their communities.
When we Build Peace we are making the Beloved Community, and at MN Peacebuilding our Vision is Making Minnesota the Peacebuilding Power State.
In receiving this Peace Mug Award, I am aware of and grateful for the support that I have received from Faith Mennonite Church in Minneapolis, Central Plains Mennonite Conference, and the Peace and Justice Support Network of Mennonite Church USA and the Mennonite Mission Network for this reconciling peacebuilding work.
Thank you for very much!
