PJI Principle 10: Turn to Wonder

Tuesday, June 23, 2020

To help guide us through this time, the Peace and Justice Institute (PJI) has been sharing one Principle for How We Treat Each Other per week. This week, we feature Principle 10:

“In times so emotionally charged in relation to the racial terror, human death toll, economic devastation and mass unemployment, turning to wonder is a critical skill, so as to be able to stand in each other’s shoes and imagine what the other is experiencing at this moment,” shared Director of the Peace and Justice Institute Rachel Allen. “Being in a place of judgment allows me to feel secure and righteous. During times like these, there is no security. My ability to stand in a place of not knowing, of openness and wonder, creates a possibility for conscious relationship and a movement toward peace.”
