Happy New Year!
For many, 2016 seemed a year of gathering darkness. The world has seemed full of sadness, anger and fear. There is a sense of helplessness; what can we do in face of events that shape our world? We can choose to be ourselves and not be ruled by fear.
We can listen with care, speak with kindness. We can act with compassion, treating others as we would be treated. We can remember that peace begins with us, in our own hearts. It wouldn’t be a bad place to start.
May the light that is in each of us shine for all.
