Healing racism and fear

Honesty, humility, patience, and prayer are powerful resources for the establishment of brotherhood, as the articles in this week's "in focus" bring out. Racism and division among people around the world may appear to have different root causes—as we see, for example, in Bosnia, Nigeria, Rwanda, the Middle East, or major cities such as Los Angeles or Paris. Yet the spiritual solutions proposed in these articles point the way to healing, no matter where we are.

What better way to join in Brotherhood/Sisterhood Week, which—under the sponsorship of the National Conference of Christians and Jews in the United States—has been celebrated during the third week in February every year since 1934.

Racial diversity is increasing in societies throughout the world. Concurrent with this growth is the opportunity for all races to overcome fear and animosity toward each other. The establishment of harmonious interracial relationships is not only essential for a peaceful future, but it is also universally possible through a spiritual understanding of God, of Truth and Love.
