Perhaps my favorite song about peace is “Let There Be Peace on Earth“, which we’ve sung at the end of every Unity service I’ve ever attended. And my favorite line: “Let peace begin with me.”
I believe that peace is a one-person-at-a-time process. No one can make anyone else be peace. The only place where you can absolutely control peace is within you. We’ll explore various nuances of that idea in a number of challenges–and you’re welcome to present a view that differs with mine.
The first challenge/question for the Journey2Peace: where do you believe peace begins? Outside of you or within you? With governments or within hearts? This challenge will run through February 1. If you want to participate, write a post that explores these questions, post it on your blog with a link to this post and with the tags: J2PChallenge and Journey2Peace
Just a reminder, I’ll be posting a new challenge on the first Monday of every month. You’ll have the whole month to write and publish a post (or three or four or more!) about each challenge. Don’t forget the tags and the link!
If you don’t have a blog but want to participate or you blog but this topic doesn’t fit, get in touch; you can send me your post and I’ll publish it as a guest post.
