We live into this vision of peace. We are on the side of life. We do not participate in a culture of death. We believe that every life is sacred, so we live in such a way as to make peace more likely than war. We refuse to scapegoat people of other nations or other religions. We reject false binary narratives of either-or, of all or nothing, of “us” versus “them.” These are the narratives of our ancient human ancestors on the Savannah, with their sharp spears and animal skin clothing, but we do not live in those barbaric days.
