Yesterday the ministers sermon was from the writings of Peter. The sermon was titles the seven steps to peace. The minister explains how Peter points out that the only way to find peace with others is to have peace within ones self first.

I am of course unsure what religion you practice but I know that despite religious affiliation inner peace is something we all should and could work on. You would be hard pressed to read, view or listen to any news show today without hearing about some war between nations or violence inflicted on one group by another.

The small town I live in is, right next to one of the largest US Military bases in the United States. I used to work on the military base and one afternoon while traveling, off post to pick up lunch I noticed a group of protesters camped out in front of the main gate of the Army post. I have only seen a few protests in front of the main gate. Protests are interesting and some feel they make a difference. I am not sure if they do or not. I am sure though that our actions and attitudes make a big difference when it comes to peace. Inner peace with yourself becomes outer peace with yourself which becomes peace with family which becomes peace with friends and ultimately it can become peace with our enemies.
