Show Notes

In this episode, Riley and Christopher explore the promise to peacemakers in the Beatitude, “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God (Matthew 5:9), with guest, Lindsey Ohlin, co-founder of Latter-day Peace Studies. Lindsey shares her transition from politics to peace, how she was able to find her “true self” as a daughter of God, and what that realization has meant to her. Lindsey, Christopher, and Riley discuss what it means to “see God” in themselves and in their fellow human beings. They revisit the importance of righteousness, understood as “right relationship,” whereby “great things [are] brought to pass” by “small and simple things” we do within ourselves, our homes, and our communities as peacemakers.

Also, check out Lindsey Ohlin’s article where she describes her journey, “From Politics to Peace.”
