Making Peace

Blessed are the peacemakers. Matthew 5:9
Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness. James 3:18

by Neil Carmichael, PeacePoint’s Director of Training

On March 31, 1978, I had the honor of spending a few moments with the former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. Talking with a world leader who’d received the Nobel Peace Prize for his role in ending the Vietnam War by negotiating the Paris Peace Accords was quite a memorable encounter.

Navigating Conflict with Church Leaders

God makes it clear that church leaders deserve our respect. He also makes it clear that His expectations and standards for the shepherd are higher than they are for the flock. Conflict involving church leadership creates some of the most painful problems for Christians and churches. Those same conflicts provide unique opportunities to build unity and harmony. The outcome depends on our choices. Let’s choose wisely!

Confrontation: Loving Others with the Truth – Called To Action Radio Show

Confrontation is uncomfortable but essential.  God uses confrontation to get the attention of those at risk and to return them to a place of safety and security.  Done poorly, confrontation can be a disaster.  Done well, it is an act of love, grace and mercy.  Let’s get it right.

PeacePoint Continues to Pursue Peace in Burundi

by Tim Sellers, PeacePoint President

Where in the world is Burundi?

Like most American Christians, I had never given that question any thought at all. Now, Burundi and God’s people there are at the center of PeacePoint’s attention and efforts.

Burundi is in sub-Saharan, East Africa, to the east and northeast of Lake Tanganyika. Roughly the size of Massachusetts, it is bordered by the Congo, Rwanda, and Tanzania. Burundi was a French colony until July 1, 1962, when it gained ...

A Kingdom at Peace

…and the kingdom was at peace… 2 Chronicles 14:5

The effects of Sin incline toward turmoil not peace. This truth painfully manifested itself in my life in my early 40’s. At the time I had a very active career, was a church elder, a Cub Scout leader, an adult Sunday school teacher, lecturer for a Wednesday Bible study, husband to a wonderful wife, and father to two great kids―a son 9 and a daughter 7.

One Friday I flew roundtrip from ...
