Real Peace with God Is a Verb

Sermon by Rev. Patrick Notley

May 30, 2010

Romans 5:1-21

Taken from the Hebrew word Shalom, the Greek word we have translated as peace is Eirene and has its roots in the verb to join or unite. But, also like Shalom, it has deeper meanings of wholeness, unity, and prosperity, and it is meant to be understood not as a singular event between two individuals but as a communal activity that is engaged in by all.
