Imagine Peace

"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God."
--Matthew 5:9

I'm reading the book Thirteen Days in September, which is about 1978 Camp David Accords. From what I've read, peacemakers seem to have four common characteristics (either individually or collectively):

  • Imaginative. You have to be able to imagine what peace looks like.
  • Adventurous. You have to be willing to sail into uncharted waters.  
  • Trusting. You have to trust that other people share your desire for peace, even if you may differ on the details of what peace looks like.
  • Energitic. You will need the energy to make your vision a reality.

As long as somebody somewhere can imagine peace, I'm confident that we will achieve peace. I just need to be patient and persevere.
