Peace Day 8 Accountability
Monday, December 09, 2019
Connecting with others, that’s our theme for the week.
I once heard that the ability to deepen one’s faith was a little like increasing one’s fitness. The more you show up and do the work, the more fit one becomes. Expecting to be fit by going to the gym once a week or even a month won’t produce the results one might be hoping to achieve.
Cultivating peace in one’s life and the world fits into this analogy… thinking about peace, doing something peace-oriented, once a week or here and there is most likely not going to result in peace-filled days or a world culture of peace.
“Peace... this we choose each day.”
A daily choice (for most of us)…
Coming back to the fitness scenario… it’s often suggested that to get to the gym more frequently or to walk more often, one find a “work-out” or “walking” partner. Someone who might hold you accountable to show up.
Why not find a peace-partner or peace-buddy? Someone you can connect with on your own pre-determined schedule to “chat” about peace.
Daily peace tip #8
Identify a friend or two, perhaps a group who are interested in peace. Decide how often you want to get together and what type of structure this might have.
Maybe you get together for coffee or to knit, could be over the phone or email.
