Many have said that they want peace at any price. Many have given their lives for peace. But history shows us that even after the supreme sacrifices have been made we are left with unending wars and tragedies. We cannot win, earn or award peace.
Jesus promised peace to the world and tried to show us a way to live into peace. Yet after 2000 years the lack of world peace is starkly evident on our nightly news channels.
It is tempting to give up any hope of peace. But there is one place where the work toward peace can take hold. It begins within our own soul, then shared with one other soul, and that soul to another. A cycle of peace is created, and before we know it,.. we are waging peace everywhere.
