Compassionate Presence in the Face of Violence


“I must confess that I have many more questions now that when first I started this work… in reference to faith I am less certain of the certainties I once had. Though I must also say, that living in the face of violence, alongside people of extraordinary courage, has deepened my faith… For me faith is not about quantity and certainty… it is about essence… be yourself… be open…. be curious… Know that Truth unfolds endlessly…” (John Paul Lederach, Compassionate Presence)
