The Acts of the Apostles tell us that the very first name the earliest followers of Jesus gave
themselves was the people of “The Way” (see, for example, the Acts of the Apostles 9:2).
Only later, when the gospel had spread to Antioch, did people outside the community name them
“Christians” (see Acts 11:26). The name “The Way” implied that these early disciples of Jesus
were committed to following in his footsteps and living as he did. It also reminded them—
and us—that as people of faith we are on a lifelong journey to God.

Blessed are the Peacemakers

Trustee Dinner

"The peacemakers, those who put an end to violence, who lay down the sword, who work for harmonious relationships, who break the patterns of hatred, who love even their enemies, will be called 'children of God,' the ultimate blessing.  These 'children of God,' be they Jews, Christians, and Muslims in the Middle East, or we gathered here, are mandated by our great religious traditions to be peacemakers."
