Hope, Renewal, and Just-Giving: Support WAYS OF PEACE!

These are painful times of fear, anger, and divisiveness. Yet mindful responses to shared human needs continue to bring out the best in people on all sides. Hope and renewal are available — and the choices are ours.

In 2016 we reached new milestones with the publication of our first two books, COUNTING DAYS and GENEROUS JUSTICE.* We were called to facilitate challenging conversations, expanding dialogue and support among leaders and community members. We continued to guide individuals and families through both joyous and sorrowful changes in their lives.

WAYS OF PEACE depends upon our network of individual supporters who share our vision. We have not yet received any foundation support for our pioneering model of social microenterprise. We hope you will be generous, and we promise to extend your generosity even further.*
