Promoting the Peace of Jesus in the 21st Century

We are a community of artists, writers, scholars, activists, pastors, and everyday peacemakers dedicated to empowering you with a Jesus-centered approach to justice and peacemaking.

Created by and for Gen Z and Millennials of Color, we take seriously the creative, social and spiritual call for voices of color to lead conversations on both biblical concepts and praxis on holistic restoration in our society.

We help center and platform voices of color that seek to restore dignity and honor to all of God’s creation including people, families, communities, systems, nations, and environment.

Peace often feels like an elusive dream. We long for it so badly and yet find peace just slightly out of our reach. No matter how much we rage against the darkness, our world keeps spinning with fraught racial tensions, political divides, disease, and broken families. How are we to ever experience restoration when this cycle never ends?

This publication seeks to explore a new way forward; a way that causes healthy disruption, brings heaven on earth, and makes wholeness reachable. The model, indeed the archetype, of this new way forward is Jesus Christ. Jesus is the essence of peace…

When we are interacting with people of another culture, many of us correlate successful engagement with simply not being mean to them. And that’s a good start. But that really is the lowest standard you can have and still have a positive interaction. It requires almost nothing on our part, yet everything is on the other person. We tell ourselves, “I’m open to meeting new people,” but built into this approach is an expectation that people should come to us and do the heavy lifting in the relationship. …

Our hearts have been designed for the kind of kinship and connection that can only come from being in a community and together with other people. God knew from the very beginning that this type of existence would be the best one: an existence that helps to sustain, empower, and encourage others to live their best lives while simultaneously giving meaning to and enriching our lives. This is the miraculous gift of community; without it, we’re missing out on one of the biggest, most significant graces of being human.

In his now-famous “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” (April 16, 1963)…

Prayer is a spiritual discipline that causes our ear to be attentive to the voice of our almighty, all-knowing, and all-powerful God as he speaks his words of wisdom and direction. Prayer is the dynamite discipline that fueled the civil rights movement — a movement that God used to change a nation. Through the practice of prayer, God imparted revelation and knowledge into the mind of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., which empowered him to move forward by faith in his Lord.

The nonviolent protests Dr. King led were instrumental in transforming America. …

I love the statement “In certain respects, every person behaves like all others: in other respects, like some others . . . and in some cases, like no others.” We are “like all others” speaks to me about our humanity. We can travel throughout the world and find people wrestling with pain and suffering or enjoying the birth of a baby. When I see the tragedy of a plane crash in another part of the world and the images on television of people weeping and grieving over their loss, my heart is moved. And as I have traveled to the…

“God just seems really immature!” I could feel my face turning red as my body responded to my classmate’s comment. It was my first-year, college English class and I was all excited to study the Bible as literature. I can’t remember the passage we were studying or the classmate who said it. I can only remember feeling somehow responsible to defend God’s reputation in front of my skeptical classmates and the frustration of not knowing how to respond. In that moment, my body’s response was based on the offense I took at the challenge to my own…

Last Christmas, my cousin @shivsters and I exchanged gifts in the morning and in the evening we attended her community Christmas party. The local Gujarati community gathered together to eat delicious Indian food, play musical chairs (to Bollywood songs) and dance to Hindi and Gujarati music.

I love how God created us all uniquely. I love how He made a way for people of all backgrounds to come to saving faith in Him. He makes it possible to celebrate my unique, beautiful culture in a way that’s honoring to Him.

While this Christmas looks very different, I still have hope…
