Prioritizing Peace #165

 

How do we get to a place of peace? Usually by navigating through conflict. It can be difficult and uncomfortable to understand others who do not share our views. Today we speak with Tim Wilson and Moses Small from Seeds of Peace about the importance of truth, dialogue and mutual respect in conflict transformation. We also talk with Ted Coffin about how the Summit Project honors lives that are lost in the interest of peace.
