Fusion Faith: In the beginning of this series on Creating Peace, I shared that the first Principle of Peace is to be rooted in God.

We have to remind ourselves of just how accessible God is.
“It is important to realize that when people speak of God, they often think of an entity which has nothing to do with themselves or their lives, but that is not the case.
