After the horrific events at Sandy Hook Elementary, we have much to think about both spiritually and politically. The problem of violence in America is obviously a multi-dimensional issue with many root causes, and it will take all of our efforts – both individually and collectively – to create the peaceful world in which such horrors do not exist. We will only end the culture of violence in the United States when we commit to the creation of a culture of peace.
Sister Giant’s call is to work from the inside out. We view politics from a holistic perspective, seeking to address the internal, causal aspects of an issue as well as its external symptoms. From the psychological and spiritual to the legislative and institutional, we seek a deeper understanding of our problems and a greater effectiveness at dealing with them. Violence in America is a risk to all, calling each of us to do both the inner and the outer work to nullify and transform it.
Our latest Sister Giant Conference Call was on the topic of Ending A Culture of Violence, Creating a Culture of Peace.
