The Peace Stories Blog
“You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone’s soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows that they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift.”
— author Erin Morgenstern

The Peace Stories blog is about the power of stories–in particular, the power of stories to change the world–and maybe, just maybe, to change us too.
Our scriptures, that original collection of stories that our ancestors cherished and passed down to us generation after generation, tell us, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” The stories told on our blog, whether taken individually or woven together, provide us a vision that speaks to both the presence of peace in our world today and the promise of peace for peoples and places that so desperately yearn for it.
The voices on our blog come from throughout our global movement, 120 member organisations on 5 continents, individuals and groups who are witnessing to peace with justice through the practice of active nonviolence and reconciliation. These are the voices and stories of people close to the action, on the ground, at the grassroots, all joined together to make Pax Christi International.
