To pray for peace is not to seek a healing that is contrary to our deepest instinct. It is rather, as Mahatma Gandhi said, to get in touch with "the intense longings of the human heart."
We have tended to see one another in terms of our differentiations. This is one way of seeing ... But it is only one way of seeing. Equally essential is to see the whole. This is the vision that the Praying for Peace Initiative is committed to recovering.
