Give Peace a Year – Meeting twenty

Champagne Flute



With the aim of peace everywhere,

 starting here and now, transforming violence and conflict of needs  in life, one word, thought or deed at a time.

And because

it’s not the slog that will get us there, it’s the joy

for balance, things that warmed our hearts and made life a pleasure.


Starting where transformation is needed.

Examples from the group of peace lovers this week on Thursday 1st December

We have a first this time. Zero issues brought for transformation and a lot of things that were a delight, some of which are examples of people finding nonviolent ways to stand for and uphold what is important to them.

Pure joy all round then.

Cheers to that.


San Francisco passed many resolutions

amongst which was this

“be it further resolved that we will continue reforming our police department and building trust between communities of colour so all citizens feel safe in their neighbourhoods”

a whole host of peace bringing resolutions passed nine votes in favour and zero against


Surprisingly good food

In a regular and ordinary kind of pub, expectations for the food were also kind of ordinary. It was not!

Wonderful… thank you for the surprisingly good food

The Rising Sun at Potton


Standing Rock – women lead with peace

Women lead with prayer and vision and the men protect


Arts afternoon

Organised a Saturday arts afternoon and it was wonderful. Such a warm atmosphere. with everyone enjoying the time creating things together.

Also more time for art to come in a Soul Collage course retreat


And finally, for pondering…

Is peace boring?
