A Peace that Transforms
Rev. Hardy H. Kim

“It doesn’t take much effort to imagine our world as a wilderness. Scarcity, isolation, inequity, hunger, and violence seem to rule the day. The oppressive pain and injustice around us can make us wonder whether God is still at work….

Preparing the Lord’s path means challenging systems and structures that we have institutionalized as normal but that God condemns as oppressive and crooked. It means clearing the path of self-aggrandizement, self-absorption, and greed to make way for a community where all of creation is valued.”
—Rev. Traci Blackmon, Associate General Minister of Justice & Local Church Ministries, United Church of Christ
