A Fresh Approach
Welcome to Peace Lab, where children discover God’s way of peace! From learning how to resolve conflicts to figuring out ways to help others, this interactive VBS curriculum helps children learn how to be peacemakers. The five Bible stories in this curriculum lead children on an awesome adventure through the Bible, equipping them to follow Jesus as compassionate peacemakers.
The Peace Lab VBS starter kit from Herald Press comes with everything you need to help children become God’s peacemakers. Each day’s story and theme are rooted in the Bible and help concepts about active peacemaking come to life in age-appropriate ways through dramas, playing games, making crafts, sharing snacks, and other fun activities.
Shalom, the Hebrew word often translated as “peace,” was a far cry from blogger and podcaster Osheta Moore’s crazy life. In Shalom Sistas, Moore shares what she learned when she challenged herself to study peace in the Bible for forty days. Taking readers through the twelve points of the Shalom Sista Manifesto, Moore experiments with practices of everyday peacemaking and invites readers to do the same. From dropping “love bombs” on a family vacation, to talking to the coach who called her son the n-word, to spreading shalom with a Swiffer, Moore offers bold steps for crossing lines between black and white, suburban and urban, rich and poor.
With the poetic force of Kathleen Norris and the pastoral warmth of Eugene Peterson, Kansas pastor Brad Roth sets forth a vision for vibrant rural churches. Rooted in stories from Scripture, his own ministry, and interviews with rural church leaders, Roth offers a sturdy theological and practical alternative to church-growth strategies that rely on success stories and flashy metrics. Learn to live and love and minister right where you are, no matter how small or unassuming it may seem.

As a schoolteacher in a small Mennonite school in rural Wisconsin, Lucinda J. Miller wears long dresses and a prayer covering, like her grandmother, and she knows a lot about cooking and making do with what you’ve got. But she uses a cellphone and posts status updates on Facebook. Anything but Simple is the stirring memoir of a young woman’s rich church tradition, lively family life, and longings for a meaningful future within her Mennonite faith.
Women’s groups have offered Mennonite women a means of serving others by sewing clothing, laboring over quilts, rolling bandages, and packing school kits. Women’s groups have also provided Mennonite women the opportunity to test their skills as leaders and give voice to callings they felt in a church that has not always valued their gifts for ministry. In this vibrant portrait of Mennonite Women USA, Anita Hooley Yoder paints with both broad and subtle strokes the one-hundred-year history of an organization that nurtures local church women’s groups and connects Mennonite women across the world.
