Shalom is the Bible’s word for peace. Shalom is the hope of the prophets: enemies reconciled, injustices righted, hurts healed, fears calmed and communities prospering. God’s mission is to bring the whole of creation into harmony; peace with God, peace between the nations, peace with the created order. Followers of Jesus are invited to work with God in this peace-making mission to be ‘shalom activists’. Working from a peace church perspective, this course offers an opportunity to explore the meaning of shalom in all its richness and depth and to consider what it means to be ‘shalom activists’ in the world today.
