Enacting Shalom

By Chris Fillingham

4th in the series, Becoming Like Christ

A sermon on Luke 13:10-17; Jeremiah 29:1, 4-7

Enacting shalom is practicing peace, which sometimes in order to be achieved requires action on our part.   Jesus is our best example of this, when he throughout scripture takes the “bent” things/people in the world such as the disabled, or be it a system of exclusion, an economic system that alienates, or even religious practices that exclude people from God’s table.  More often, confronting the powerful head on whose primary intent is keeping things bent is the only way to bring about shalom - heaven on earth.  In using today’s language, many times enacting shalom can only be achieved by “raising a little hell” on earth.
