Dear Folks -
Here is a summary of the talk I gave in Ordinary Life this week.
I have given myself the task of attempting to describe what it means "to be happy" by looking at the Beatitudes given by Jesus. This talk focuses on this beatitude:
Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called children of God.
In this talk I contend that it is our very desire for security that make us insecure. Developing the qualities that would lead us to be true "peace makers" is the only form of true security there is on this planet. I use the life of St. Francis to illustrate this point.
