A peacemaker comprises a set of biblical practices. This message will consider 5 ways of being a peacemaker, the so-called ABCs: Acknowledgment, Bearing with, Common Ground, Doubt, and Enlistment. We will appeal to the New Testament since it both describes division and models conflict resolution. These practices build on the profile of a peacemaker. Without God's grace (and peace), these practices will falter.

To make peace with others we have to take peace from Jesus. He offered his prevailing peace to disciples. When Christ is central, the troubles of this world become less threatening. They lose their ability to unravel us. We can face our anxious age with confidence. This sermon will consider three ways polarization causes peace to fail in our age, and four ways we can keep Jesus central.
