Mature Themes in Peacemaking Intro
Share |


As we have explored what it takes to Create a Culture of Peace within ICC, we have discovered that one of the keys is to learn to recognize and respect differing perspectives, even when we disagree. We cannot show love to others by rejecting them completely, simply because they think differently than we do.  When we push people away, we lose an opportunity to speak Truth.  

I have prepared a reading/video list, which is based on my own reading as I explore our world looking for opportunities to understand myself and others so that I can model Christ and Glorify God. While we have limited the topics covered in this Peacemaking Intro Part 1 to those generally acceptable for 14 and 15 year olds, the sites containing the videos change daily and sometimes contain COMMENTS that are not appropriate.  

Because we are aware this might happen, we only require videos intended for ALL AUDIENCES for our 14-15 year olds.

Please note, even among the OVER 16 Selections, the videos themselves are NOT generally a problem. We try to provide warnings if there is a curse word or unduly coarse language, but even that is rare.  It is the comments that may be inappropriate.  We can avoid the problem simply by ignoring the comments which are always below the video.

While there is great value in going through the process of looking at the way the world views things, it is not our intent to force anyone to watch anything that students, parents/ or God feels is inappropriate in light of our overall objective to learn to create a Culture of Peace..

While we encourage stretching beyond what makes you comfortable and feel good -- it it ultimately your decision.
