Understand one another and work together so that those of us who profess belief in our respective faiths can work for the common cause of humanity.


The Peace Councilors met for the first time in November, 1995. They agreed on a statement of purpose and commitment. From many faiths, they had a common concern with their responsibilities face-to-face with suffering.
