  For several years in the 1990s, I participated in a project called Acts of Reconciliation, created by drama therapist Armand Volkas, a son of Auschwitz survivors. Volkas brought together descendants of Holocaust survivors, like me, with descendants of Nazis, gathering us to exchange stories and...

"The average age of the world's civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: from bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from great courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from...

  A peace that surpasses all understanding . . . Philippians 4:6-8   Considering what I’d been through, I would rather die than go back to the way I’d lived before; it had been sheer hell for me. But perhaps I’d had to experience hell to know peace. There had been no place where I...

Peace on earth.  Peace.  On Earth.   Is there really such a thing?  Peace.  On Earth.  I think so.  Who can dispute that there is war everywhere in this world?  People that die each and every day for a cause?  Yet, I have the audacity to say that there IS peace.  On earth. Yep, there is....

  You couldn't miss Richard Crump on a peace vigil. Despite needing a walking stick, he was full of vigour, denouncing the government's wars  with the passion of an old Testament prophet.

Most of us desire peace in our lives. I know that was the motivation for divorcing my husband. I was done with the daily uncertainty of his mood swings and decided to forfeit comfort for, well, what I considered peace. I'm pleased to say that it worked, but not before going through an uproar to get...

When I think of "peace", I often wonder what the word truly means. The understanding that it is what we percieve as the total absence of war or any type of conflict I think is a thought that mainly comes from those that live in "Free" countries. I can not help but wonder what...
