In December we all begin to think again of Peace. We remember who is not here to celebrate the holidays, the soldiers. If we can find Peace all the fathers, mothers, sons and daughters could be where they wish to be on the holiday. We send greeting cards filled with messages of Peace but I hear little dialog when we gather. We lift our voices in songs of Peace, but there is no commentary after the last refrain. It is not enough to mail it to a friend or sing it on a Sunday, we need to begin to live it every day.
Below is a link in which William Ury discusses Peace through a story we can all understand. Do you have a few minutes to give Peace a chance. The one gift that should be on our minds this season is the gift of Peace.
