Objective: Examine the role of peace-making as a lifestyle.

Peacemaking is not an event, although it can be. It is about living our lives in a way that "brings peace into the room" wherever we go. The fact is that we are all called to be peacemakers, regardless of whether we are experts, or mediators, or marriage counsellors, or parents of a houseful of unruly kids.
