In our current issue, our authors underscore that a hope-filled vision of peace dots the pages of the Old and New Testaments and the history of the church.

We hold dear the Hebrew greeting of shalom and the Arabic ’as-salam ‘alaykum that always finds its echo with wa-‘alaykum ’as-salam.

Editorial: Ethics, Action, and Oratory

by Rev. Douglas S. Stivison

If we look at ethics with any seriousness at all, we are immediately confronted with the questions about our own actions — in the voting booth, in the marketplace, in our homes, on the job, everywhere.
