In "Heeding the Call," a Tapestry of Faith program
There are many ways to approach the topic of peace. There is personal peace and the peace that reigns when everyone in a community works to resolve differences without violence. The latter is the vision we have of world peace. Peace is complex. Before helping youth understand the complexities, reflect on them yourself. When have you felt at peace personally? Is personal peace easy to keep? What helps you return to inner peace when that peace has been disturbed?
Think of the most peaceful community you have known. What kept this community peaceful? Was the peace ever shaken by physical or emotional violence? How did the community deal with the disruption?
Do you agree that without justice, there is no peace? If so, what are the implications for our peace building efforts?
