Justice and peace reign supreme

By Dave Henning / February 11, 2022

An atmosphere of peace, shalom

By Dave Henning / March 25, 2021

“I can’t wait for others to bring me peace.  I need to make the decision to bring an atmosphere of peace, shalom, into every situation I’m placed in.  Yes, this is hard.  And yes, I still find myself resistant to it.  But this is good for me.  This peace isn’t conjured up by us; it […]

By Dave Henning / August 18, 2019

“The blessing of peace takes on the full depth of it’s meaning in the shadow of the cross because it was on this tree that God reconciled the world to himself. . . .  If there’s any sentimentality still clinging to the concept of blessing, the cross utterly strips it away, exposing the reality that […]

By Dave Henning / August 11, 2019
