Toward the Peaceful One


Our journey from World Conference 2019 has been guided by the question: Are we moving toward Jesus, the peaceful One?

Reunion resources in 2020 and 2021 were prepared to explore this question and guide conversations about nonviolence in preparation for World Conference 2023. The global pandemic has significantly limited opportunities for groups to engage with these formational resources and experiences.

Rather than creating new resources for 2022, groups are encouraged to use.

  • Living Jesus…Living Peace (2020)
  • Let Peace Dwell Here (2021)

Our journey is enriched as the content, questions, and practices help us keep the conversation going and deepen our understanding of what it means to move toward and with Jesus, the peaceful One.

Resource Options

  1. Use Living Jesus...Living Peace themes and resources
  2. Use Let Peace Dwell Here themes and resources or incorporate the supplemental materials.
  3. Choose a new theme, such as “Toward the Peaceful One,” and draw from themes and content not used in 2020 or 2021. Event planners could also pull content from the Toward the Peaceful One multimedia series:
    1. Project Zion Podcast episodes;
    2. Herald articles; and
    3. IGTV series and Zoom recordings of interviews with authors.
