“Made in Germany” – Mark of Excellence
This beautiful Peace Bronze Plaque was made in Germany. “Made in Germany” is a guarantee of value and quality. This piece was designed in our Denver studio and is an original piece that is part of the Creator Mundi Collection. After it is crafted into form, it is made into a unique sand cast and compressed into a mold that can withstand the heat and pressure from 1200 degree molten bronze. In the final stages, each piece is tumbled and sanded, patina added and then polished by goldsmiths who bring the artist’s vision to life. Artisans who created this piece apprentice for three years to learn the Old World techniques. Each piece is touched by at least a dozen pairs of hands. Feel the weight of the piece as you reflect on how it inspires you in truth and beauty. Notice the details, the places where light plays off its polished edges, and the space that draws you in and allows you to connect meaning to your own life. This beauty can be shared for generations to come. The work of human hands makes this heirloom quality.
What kind of “peace” does Jesus give us?
Anyone who follows Jesus knows that peace in our world is much more of an ideal than a reality in any true sense of the word. Conflict and strife abound everywhere in every corner of our world and in the deepest recesses of every human heart. The “peace” that the world offers is more of an “absence of war” than true peace. True peace, the peace of Christ, is indeed much, much more than this. As the U.S. Bishops wrote in section 27 of their 1983 pastoral letter The Challenge of Peace: God’s Promise and Our Response:
For us as believers, the sacred scriptures provide the foundation for confronting war and peace today. Any use of scripture in this area is conditioned by three factors. First, the term “peace” has been understood in different ways at various times and in various contexts. For example, peace can refer to an individual’s sense of well-being or security, or it can mean the cessation of armed hostility, producing an atmosphere in which nations can relate to each other and settle conflicts without resorting to the use of arms. For men and women of faith, peace will imply a right relationship with God, which entails forgiveness, reconciliation, and union. Finally, the scriptures point to eschatological peace, a final, full realization of God’s salvation when all creation will be made whole. Among these various meanings, the last two predominate in the scriptures and provide direction to the first two.
