I contribute to peace in the world through my thoughts, words, and actions.
Peace is both an individual and collective experience. I have the ability and, at times the responsibility, to promote peace in the world through my thoughts, words, and actions. When I become aware of conflict or turmoil, I hold those affected in prayer, acting as an agent of compassion and understanding. As a world citizen, I am an advocate for those suffering. I pray knowing all people are enfolded in the love of God. I pray for guidance on how I can promote peace. My individual state of consciousness affects the world as a whole. Peace happens one person, one prayer, one outstretched hand at a time.
Since there will never cease to be some in need on the earth, I therefore command you, “Open your hand to the poor and needy.”—Deuteronomy 15:11
