Best Practices for Peace in 2015
The time-honored tradition of New Year's Resolutions is usually directed toward an individual's ambitions, and usually enjoys a short life. By the end of January, many resolutions have been forgotten or gently set aside. Instead of reflecting on personal goals, Patheos has invited contributors to consider some "resolutions" around faith-based practices that could lead to greater peace in 2015.
It's easy to identify behaviors and attitudes that contribute to social, cultural, or political problems, but it's far harder to make realistic and judicious suggestions about how individuals, communities, and even larger social units — denominations, alliances, voluntary associations, etc. — might contribute to peace within families, between adversaries, in the political arena, and even on a global scale. What traditions, practices, rituals, or new ventures would you like to encourage for 2015 that could initiate greater peace in areas of strife?
