An acquaintance recently linked to article about recent Muslim attacks on Christians in Pakistan. They understandably asked, “In light of events like these, is dialog even possible?” (paraphrase).

Dialog is always possible, because all things are possible with God.
As we live into our Christ-identity as peacemakers, we must have faith. The Holy Spirit will do his work.
We may indeed die in the process, but we have the hope of resurrection.
Isn’t that the example of the cross, and aren’t we called to follow Jesus there?

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
