Make Peace
Make Peace focuses on Jesus’ words in the Beatitudes, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God” (Matthew 5:9), which have been the centerpiece of Christian social ethics for centuries. People, throughout history and still today, have chosen different paths to peace, but certain skills of peacemaking have emerged from their journeys: cultivating inner peace, seeking to understand where others are coming from, and having the courage to overcome fear. By practicing these skills, peacemakers work to embody Jesus’ teachings in the midst of conflict. Explore God’s vision for peace, true shalom, in this unit from Follow Me: Biblical Practices for Faithful Living.

Adult Reflection Guide
The Adult Reflection Guide is a workbook or journal for adults that allows for self-guided study of the practice. This guide engages adults through study, reflection questions, space for writing or drawing, and suggestions for practicing the practice. Included in this piece is the foundational essay, which dives even deeper into the biblical scholarship of each practice. This piece works well for individual study or for small group study when combined with the Adult Leader’s Guide.

Featured in the Adult Reflection Guide:

  • Know Peace (Isaiah 11:1–9; Matthew 5:9; Mark 4:35–41)
  • Take a Step Back (Isaiah 2:2–4; Luke 1:46–55)
  • Understand Others (Matthew 8:1–3; Mark 2:13–17; John 4:1–30)
  • Take Risks for Peace (1 Samuel 25:2–44; Luke 10:25–37; John 8:1–11)

In addition to the material in the Adult Leader’s Guide and the Adult Reflection Guide, there are also free videos that leaders can use as conversation starters for the unit and each session. Visit our YouTube Channel,, to see the playlist for this unit.
