Summary:     Shalom is a promise of hope for the contrite from a God of grace.  To experience this hope is to then be invited to participate in making it so. Jesus demonstrated what would be someday, even as the promises are actualized over time and through us.  Shalom guides believers to bless their communities over the long haul.
