Editor’s Note

jb peacesignsFriends,

Great to be in touch with you in the new year. I hope your prayers and hope for 2013 are enduring. As Apostle Paul writes, “We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.”  There’s lots to be done this year for aspiring peacemakers. But there’s also a lot to marvel at–many, many  expressions of God’s love  to illuminate the world.  I hope we all allow time for that spiritual illumination even as we journey into dark places.

I think you’ll enjoy this issue of PEaceSigns. We’ve got great work from J. Ron Byler, Patricia Kisare, Berry Freisen, Max Ediger and Tom Beutel. We also have a book review this month, touching on the subject of Moral Injury.

Also this month, I’m happy you introduce you to Justin Heinzekehr. Justin Heinzekehr is a Ph.D. student in theology at Claremont Lincoln University. He explores the relationship between process theology and Anabaptist thought.  His article will get your wheels turning on the ideas of  God’s creativity  and “divine novelty”.

Peace,

Jason
