“I have seen how we hurt each other in conflicts and it saddens me to see families and friendships fall apart. I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ provides both the motivation and the power for us to live peaceably with each other. PeaceWise equips, encourages and supports ordinary people “do relationships better”. I love being involved in the ministry of PeaceWise because there really is no higher privilege (or challenge!) than to personally live and spend time serving others become gospel-centred peacemakers.”
