Thought of the Week - Being Peacemakers and setting an example

 

Quote: “Great peacemakers are all people of integrity, of honesty and humility” – Nelson Mandela

 

Forgiveness can be so hard. When a friend or family member has hurt us then forgiveness can be the last thing on our minds, but it is also so important so much of the time. Nelson Mandela spend 27 years in prison for protesting against a racist regime. He came out teaching that the only way to move forward was to forgive those who had imprisoned him, to work with them, to be a peacemaker.

 

Questions:

  1. Is there anyone that you’re angry with right now?
  2. How could you make amends with that person?
  3. Why not buy or bake a cake for that person? you never know what a transforming act like that could do.
