Checking in for Peace

Sunflowers! All in a row, nodding over one another’s shoulders.

It’s a nice metaphor for community isn’t it?

I see you. I know you. I worry when things are uncertain in your life and rejoice when things go well. Otherwise, I’m standing here. Even though I’m minding my own business, I have your back.

That’s what membership in a strong community does. Sure people are curious about one another, perhaps more than they should, but that means they’re there when they’re needed.

And so often, just a nudge on the shoulder and a concerned nod (or a soft question) is what we need to feel seen, to contribute to our Peace.

Peace gets made in many little ways. Some of them are so easy, why wouldn’t we do them? Let us stand together for Peace.
