we seek shalom

Our presence as God’s people is not to act as saviors or naive do-gooders; we are to be the ones who see the gift that is already present.  We seek shalom–a marriage of peace and prosperity.  And only once the abandoned corners of the empire have found their shalom can any of us enjoy the peace and prosperity God desires for all.

~The Rev. Steve Jerbi, All Peoples Church, Milwaukee
