As part of the country prepares for a hurricane, I think of the power that the waves hold. I spent a lot of time at the lake this summer. The gentle, rhythmic rolling of the water is soothing, especially at night. And while admittedly I prefer a calm lake, I know the wind and the waves bring change, and their presence cannot be ignored.
On September 21, at 12:00pm, we have a special opportunity to be, build, and preach peace. In celebration of International Peace Day, People around the world from all faiths and cultures are joining together to pray, meditate, and act for peace. We can be peace as we take part of our prayer time to calm ourselves; we build and preach peace in the power of not only the strength of the many of us gathered, but the effects of this gathering in our communities. And so whether you are at home, school, or work…dive in and encourage those around you to build the peace wave! #flashmobforpeace (no I don’t tweet but if I did this is what I would use)
