Peace Or Discomfort?

Peace Or Discomfort?

  1. I think MLK said it best, “True peace is not merely the absence of tension: it is the presence of justice.”

    Those of us who are comfortable, in times like these, really need to ask ourselves why we feel comfortable. Is it at the expense, discomfort, or exploitation of others?

    Asking, listening, researching, building community, advocating for justice — these are just a small number of ways to bring yourself into a needed discomfort as you explore why you can feel the comfort that you do — even though there is so much suffering in a world that can be made better.

    As a white man living in this country, it is my responsibility to educate myself on the unfortunate consequences of some of my comfort and then work to engage and challenge other white men to understand that we benefit so much.

    I could say so much more. But I’ll leave it there for now.
