Song of Solomon 4:9—5:1
The Dalai Lama said, “Where ignorance is our master, there is no possibility of real peace.” So how do we teach peace? The United Council of Christian Education (CUEC), a partner organization to Global Ministries in Argentina, is putting forth a strong effort in doing just that, in part, by organizing workshops such as “A Culture of Peace”. The workshop involves youth from the marginalized neighborhoods of Buenos Aires and concentrates on changing the culture of youth violence and the crime that stems from it. Donations through Global Ministries allow CUEC to expand their workshops, not only in scope but also in the number of staff members to help conduct the workshops. Through teaching children the importance of human rights, offering them other opportunities for growth, and by changing their attitudes about their future CUEC is striving to unseat ignorance and replace it with the power of peace that comes with knowledge.
