In "Heeding the Call," a Tapestry of Faith program
Peace begins with yourself, with the way you treat your family, your friends, your communities, your country—but it does not stop there. Peace that begins in the hearts of children can cover the whole world. — Mayerly, 14, Colombian Children's Movement for Peace
In Today's Workshop...
We learned peace-building tools like active listening. We discussed a story about children in Colombia living through civil war. We also learned that peace it is not about an absence of conflict but rather a way to resolve conflict without hurting each other. One of the tools we learned about was "knowing your stuff." What is your stuff? Your stuff is everything about you: good, bad, ugly and beautiful. It is your past, your present, your perceived notions and aspirations for the future. It is all you have experienced, thought of, dreamt of, felt, seen, heard, smelled. It is your beliefs, values, stereotypes, judgments. Your "stuff" is what makes you distinct from all others. It's you!
