Positioned For Peace
- Be Informed
“focused, intentional effort to increase ones’ knowledge about conflict and how to handle it.”
One of the most valuable traits of a Peacemaker is their desire to be informed. Through research, study, training and personal experience, the heart of a peacemaker longs to help transform conflicts and bring relief to hurting people and communities.
Two ways in which Peacemakers positon themselves for peace include:
- Preparing themselves by acquiring knowledge about conflicts, such as social injustice through community involvement.
- Declaring a specific area of expertise and working extensively in that field.
The value of being Informed:
Being informed about issues builds trust and influences others to support your cause. ~People don’t at first follow worthy causes. They follow worthy leaders who promote causes they can believe in.
If you’re looking to create change and become a Peacemaker…be informed.
