New Multi-faith Reflection Book Prompts Us Towards Peace
Now more than ever, people are painfully divided politically, religiously, and culturally. And yet, there is a commonality in our faith traditions that can help us turn away from polarization and create a greater sense of community in which our differences are honored.
Multifaith leader Jerry Zehr has beautifully crafted a forty-day journey through religious traditions such as Bahá’í, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Native American spiritualities, and more. For a fuller picture of the divine, we must not focus on what separates us from others but rather what unifies us; this is the work of the peacemaker. Zehr’s new book, The Peacemaker’s Path, is available wherever books are sold.
Each chapter includes:
- Thought-provoking meditations and stories
- Holy scriptures from various faith traditions
- Questions for reflection
- Daily call to action
- Closing prayer
Loving our friends is easy; loving the other will bring shalom
