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.

    • Thanks so much for the reblog. It’s actually a once a month challenge though. You’ve helped me realize that I explained that in the initial post about this and forgot to put it in here, so thanks for that. I’m about to edit now!

Please add your thoughts; love a good discussion!
