Luke 19:41 & 42
And when he drew near and saw the city Jesus wept over it, saying, “Would that even today you knew the things that make for peace! But now they are hid from your eyes.”
What are the beliefs, unspoken assumptions, and patterns of behavior that keep humanity locked into violence and hate?
What do we need to understand about the ways we live that produce such horrid outcomes?
What are the needs that we think are being met when we abuse and neglect one another?
What are the meta-narratives we embrace that have maladaptive sway on our individual and collective psyche?
Can we name the pain and the fear that block the pathways to peace?
Would that even today we understood these things.
