We are trusting that Jesus–purely nonviolent, purely benevolent, purely good–truly is the logos that reveals the heart of God and the ultimate inner logic by which the universe arcs toward justice and peace.  And we are trusting that the Holy Spirit groans within us, as Paul puts it, in longings too deep for words, yearning within us for all creation to be liberated from the futility of human hostility and the destruction it unleashes.  We are trusting that regardless of the ways the Bible has been abused for hostile purposes, it has unimagined resources for peaceable ones.
