SOWING PEACE Initiative: First event
The Sowing Peace Initiative had a very successful first event. You can read about it at http://sowingpeace.ca/. Many more events are to come. At the present we are concentrating our efforts on London, Ontario, but I plan to hop on my bicycle and go wherever in the future. If you are interested in the Sowing Peace Initiative and would like to have an event to promote sowing the seeds of peace, you can use the contact form on my main page or leave a comment on this blog. I will go when I can, but if I can’t make it, don’t let that stop you from holding the event. You may use resources on or linked to any of my web sites were applicable. Some restriction may apply to how some information is used, depending on who the copyright owner is, but most information can be used for planning events.
‘Abdu’l-Bahá was a great peace ambassador. Many of his talks and writings are available on line. You can check the links on >http://sowingpeace.ca/ to find many of them.
Feel free to contact me or leave a comment if you want any more information on the Sowing Peace initiative.
One point of interest is how happy everyone looks. If you look at the picture of the participants of our first event, there are smiles all around. It seems there is great joy in bringing peace to the world. Peace begins with our thoughts. ‘Abdu’l-Bahá says, “I charge you all that each one of you concentrate all the thoughts of your heart on love and unity. When a thought of war comes, oppose it by a stronger thought of peace. A thought of hatred must be destroyed by a more powerful thought of love. Thoughts of war bring destruction to all harmony, well-being, restfulness and content.” (‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Paris Talks, p. 29)
