Peace begins in our own backyard

Our ability to influence world events for the better has a lot to do with how we address challenges in our own lives.

As various conflicts in the world find their way into newspaper headlines, many have asked, "What can I do to help bring about peace? Will my prayers be effective? How can such a large problem be influenced by one person?"

I found myself asking these same questions. As I thought about this, it became clear that if I wanted to make any kind of meaningful contribution to world peace, I needed to be sure that my life and immediate environment were expressing peace. A situation in my own backyard that needed a peaceful resolution came to mind.

We'd love to hear from you!
