Peace In Our Lifetime

I only recently discovered Unity's stand on war and conflict and believe it to be one of the most well written, thoughtful, and peace-filled stands ever taken by a religious or spiritual community.

Joint Statement for Peace
Unity and the Association of Unity Churches

"Unity stands for peace in the presence of conflict; for love in the presence of hatred; for forgiveness in the presence of injury. Unity honors the many names for God, the many paths to God, the many ways to worship God; for there is only one power and presence of God and that God loves each one of us equally. It is therefore the position of The International Association of Unity Churches and Unity to urge all nations, their leaders, and their people to turn to God by whatever the name for guidance during these challenging times and pursue peace, not war, for this is what honors the God of all our faith traditions. Unity stands for peace in our lifetime."

What a beautiful and critically important statement. It gave me chills. Thank-you. I couldn't agree more.
