Reports on the International Women’s Day ZOOM gathering, 8 March 2021
The purpose of the evening was to explore nonviolence and the role of advocacy and nonviolence and religious life through the work of two women and to celebrate the many approaches to peace that women bring to our world
Pax Christi member Anne Dodd offers a personal reflection.
To bring about change requires both dogged, persistent engagement with those who hold the levers of power and, equally, the grass roots tilling of the soil, the day-to-day actions within families, local communities and individual hearts and minds. True change, real change, real transformation depends on both these two different kinds of peace building. This truth was reflected in the two contrasting speakers, Mary Yelenick and Sister Katrina Alton. Such all-important qualities as deep listening, empathetic building of close relationships and building mutual trust were explored and affirmed as vital in peace building.
