Making Room for Peace
(Jim Keat)

“The myth of redemptive violence says ‘you hit me, I hit you back.’ The myth of redemptive violence calls for peace by issuing an attack.”

How have you seen or experienced the myth of redemptive violence in the world around you?

O come, desire of nations, bind
In one the hearts of all humankind
Bid Thou our sad divisions cease
And be Thyself our King of peace
