Finding peace in conflict
A reflective story for Remembrance
Where is God in times of conflict?
Sometimes there are no easy answers to those big questions that touch the very core of how we understand life and faith - questions such as, 'In wartime, whose side is God on?' When Jesus was asked difficult questions, he often did not give a direct answer. Instead, he told a story. Stories speak to both the mind and the emotions, and they give us space to hear the quiet voice of conscience, or reason - or God - in the spaces between the lines.

As you reflect on these words from the Barnabas in Schools reflective story, you might like to:
- commend those who have sacrificed their lives in bitter conflicts down the years to the love of God and their eternal rest in his kingdom.
- pray for a just resolution to the conflicts in today’s world, and for peace and security for civilians living in war zones.
