Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts … Be thankful.Colossians 3 : 15
The topdog may win the game of force. But not the moral issue – and when that dawns upon him and his allies, change of consciousness sets in, and demoralization starts thawing the frozen heart. The game is over.John Malone born 1930 ( He is a Norwegian sociologist who is the principal founder of the discipline of Peace and Conflict Studies. He was the main founder of the Peace Research Institute Oslo.)
Here is a Mini Theory of Peace according to Johan Galtung.
“The basic point is that peace is a relation, between two or more parties. The parties may be
inside a person,
a state or nation ,
a region or civilization,
pulling in different directions .
Peace is not a property of one party alone, but a property of the relation between parties.”
May peace be part of our Festive time and as Edna O’ Brien says ” In a way , Winter is the real Spring – the time when inner things happen, the resurgence of nature.”
