The Power of Peace
Rev. Carol Strecker, minister
Peace can be a powerful force in our lives and in our world. Vietnamese Buddhist Master Thich Nhat Hanh says we can create true peace, which can be a powerful force in our lives and in our world. True peace isn’t passive. Thich Nhat Hanh says, “To practice peace, to make peace alive in us, is to actively cultivate understanding, love, and compassion, even in the face of misconception and conflict. Practicing peace, especially in times of war, requires courage.” How do we cultivate peace, especially in such turbulent times? And why is it so important, especially now?
