Q. When was the last time you meditated on world peace?

Q. Can you find some time today to begin or add to your present meditation time?

Hello friends, family and colleagues -

When we are engaged in the world we are sometimes challenged. Peace is a notion that seems at once impossible and the only thing that can ever truly be hoped. What if we can make a difference, what if what we do matters, what if the peace we think so elusive is actually possible today in the wake of our faith.

In 2009 our president Barack Obama received a Nobel Peace Prize not only for what he had already accomplished but for the promise he held.

For a seminary class I wrote a chant to some of the words of his acceptance speech. As the winds of a winter storm pounded our home I finished this project, an exploration of hope in image and sound.

peace -

We must do that thing we think we can not. - Eleanor Roosevelt
