As a Physical Therapist, I urge the suffering patient to remove excess stress in order to reduce heart disease, hypertension, weight gain, irritability, sleep deprivation, and depression. As a minister, I ask the anxious faithful to do the same. This is difficult. It has become popular for churches to get caught up in religious conflicts and political debates of the day. Churches often define who they are by what they are against in the world. Conflict remains. Maybe it is time again to redefine ourselves, not by what we are against, but by what who are - peacemakers.
