Jesus said: “Blessed are peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God.” (Matthew 5:9). Peace-making actions can range from helping to resolve conflict to creating space for stillness. Peace, in the sense of total well-being, is God’s intention for the whole of creation, and is a promise that awaits ultimate fulfilment.
In the Bible the Hebrew word for peace is ‘Shalom’ which has ideas of wholeness and well-being. People flourish because they are nurtured in truth and righteousness.
