The Way of Peace

As individuals, we earnestly desire peace. We want peace in our homes, in our countries, in our relationships with one another. We want peace in our innermost thoughts and feelings.

We believe that peace is God's will for the world, for the very birth of Jesus was heralded by the angels’ proclamation: “On earth peace” (Lk. 2:14). Jesus decreed peace for us again and again: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. … Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid” (Jn. 14:27).

Creating Global Peace

Creating Global Peace

"Peace doesn’t happen alone; it happens through our belonging."—Rev. Kelly Isola

The 16th annual Gandhi-King Season for Nonviolence is a testament to the power of a collective vision that has transformed a grassroots movement into a global campaign. That vision—to heal, transform, and empower communities through spiritual activism—is honored each year from January 30 through April 4.

The dates span the anniversaries of the deaths of Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.—two men who fought and died for a peaceful, nonviolent world.
