After 25 days of training, over 4 months in 5 States and 1 Territory - our national training in biblical peacemaking is over for another year. We are grateful to God for the privilege of training people all over Australia in peacemaking and thank him for all those involved - trainers, office staff, venue hosts, caterers, volunteers in various capacities, those who prayed faithfully and of course all those who attended as participants. We now look forward to all that God will do in the lives of those of us who have been "infected with the peacemaking virus"! We have yet to set the dates for national training 2017 as we work on updating our courses, but we'll keep you posted of all the further learning opportunities as they become known for next year. To God be the glory!
More chances to learn and grow as a peacemaker...
Be encouraged and revitalised to do the hard, but necessary and rewarding, work of being a peacemaker in the troubled world we live in by coming to a PeaceWise hub near you. The following hub meetings are still to happen this year - so come along and join us! If you have any questions or want to know more about hubs please click here or feel free to contact us.
Social media is one of the best ways that we can communicate with you. We love to encourage you to continue your peacemaking journey with interesting articles, inspiring images and by letting you know what is going on at PeaceWise. We would love you to communicate with us too! If you use Facebook or Twitter, like and follow us and "share" us with your friends and family. You can find us at PeaceWise on Facebook and PeaceWise@peacewise;PeaceWiseKids@PeaceWiseKidson Twitter.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. (Matthew 5:9)
Even though the last school term for 2016 is upon us and many students in high schools and tertiary institutions are readying themselves for final exams, it is still hard to believe that the year is nearly over!
None of us know when we might live our last day, and each day we have is one day closer to our Lord Jesus Christ returning, so we constantly everyone to make peace with each other and with God without delay.
You may find help in our feature article on the sad case of Brangelina - and we'd strongly encourage you to come to a hub night as well. You'll be encouraged and helped to deal with the challenge of conflict and grow in your peacemaking skills and heart.
Don't forget to visit our PeaceWiseKids page for all the latest in this project, and ways you can be involved and support this grand adventure from God.
Next month is our prayer month where we pray for you - so we will then invite you to send us your prayer requests so that we can bring you before the Father, our great loving God of Peace.
