Greg Laing (MB Missions Organizer) related stories of the hardships faced by Christians in Asia and Africa who were not afraid as they lived in the Peace of Christ. The world only offers peace through transactional promises, while Jesus offers the peace of his presence. Greg challenged us to mute the violence and ugliness in the media and take time out to commune with God in prayer. We shouldn’t avoid conflict but are called actively work for and speak out for peace. Fear not, because perfect love drives out fear (1 John 4:18). [KH]
NOTE: There is a brief gap in the recording at 22:13 which replaces a redacted personal story.
