City of peace

Jerusalem has sometimes been called the city of peace—yet that world-renowed city could be among the world's most fought-over places. It has been besieged many times, taken numerous times, and more than once razed to the ground. It is thought sacred by Jewish, Islamic, and Christian people. Relatively few, however, can rationally believe peace or even holiness resides in its earth, rock, and walls. If, as He must be, God, Spirit, is infinite, His love can be felt in one place just as much as another; all space is holy ground.

If asked, most people would readily agree that insistence upon a point of view different from that of other is no reason for bloodshed. The great majority of humanity is desperately tired of war, sectarian squabbles, and vicious terrorism.
