Advices & Queries – Peace

Peace is the state in which we are in accord with the Divine, the earth, others, and ourselves. We know that true, lasting peace is attainable through unity in the life of the Spirit.

We work to create the conditions of peace, such as freedom, justice, cooperation, and the right sharing of the world’s resources. We recognize that we are capable of both violence and peace.

  1. Do we live in the virtue of that life and power that takes away the occasion of all war?
  2. What are we doing to remove the causes of war and to bring about the conditions of peace?
  3. Where there is hatred, division, or strife how are we instruments of reconciliation and love?
