The Beatitudes conclude with the twin topics of Peacemaking and Persecution. What is the connection? As we shall see, the connection is quite straightforward: those people who have entered the Kingdom of God have a whole new life mission: peacemaking. And one sure sign that we are participating in that mission is the persecution God's people inevitably receive. Join us this Sunday as we conclude our 5 week study of the Beatitudes.
