Action Office seeks a world where relationships between persons
and among nations
are based on equality, mutual respect
and the interconnectedness of human life with all of creation.
Our current global and national climate of fear and misuse of
power and significant rise of fundamentalism works against
and can cause us to act out of fear and mistrust.
We live in a time of unprecedented change that has the potential,
if we become fearful, to draw us back into ways of being that
do not serve us well anymore.
As we prepare
for the 2004 Federal Election, we need ...
make space in our hearts and minds so that DEEP PEACE reigns
within and we can make clear and informed choices - so
that an appeal to fear is not heeded
be aware when fear is evoked and to analyse the issue thoroughly
- to not allow others to play upon our fears
take the time to reflect on the importance of attitudes and
ways of living and acting
freedom of heart and clarity of intention based on the values
of a God who consistently
asks us to TRUST and who consistently says I AM WITH YOU.
Non-violence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind
It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction
devised by the ingenuity of man (sic).
