“Healing does not barter back everything tragedy steals, but when we enter it together, we already co-midwife a kinder tomorrow.“ Hana Shapiro
God asks for reconciliation, not retribution. The ministry of reconciliation is won only through God’s love., and is the only way to have peace with healing. Whether the aggrieved parties are 2 prickly people or 2 prickly people groups, reconciliation is about winning in the future. Retribution is about losing in the past. #pricklypeople
A portion of my book profits for Making Peace with Prickly People are donated to Musalaha (see more about this on my Prickly People page). Here’s an article about their current work of reconciliation in the middle east.
“He will judge between the nations and decide for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning knives. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, nor will they learn war any more. Come house of Jacob, let us walk in the light of ADONAI.”
Isaiah 2:4-5 TLV
