Defining Peace

“Peace can be defined and conceptualized as a PRESENCE, a presence of just and faithful relationships with oneself, with others within one’s family and community, with all others within and across national borders, with all of creation, and with a Spiritual Being, Wisdom Source, Higher Power,
who both gives life and gives life meaning.”
