Is There Any Hope for Peace?

If a single person achieves the highest kind of love, it will be sufficient to neutralize the hate of millions. -MOHANDAS K. GANDHIA

Last month Dick participated in the sixth Global Baptist Peace Conference, which took place in Cali, Colombia. Over 350 people from 30 countries participated. While much remains to be done, Colombia has made major strides toward reconciliation. At one session a Senator representing the rebel faction FARC, and a woman whose husband was killed by the FARC, sat next to each other and shared their stories. Pockets of peace-making efforts are happening on every continent. Dick will share reflections from his experience in Cali.

This month's theme: Abundance
