Created by Rosemary Lynch and Mary Litell, Peace Grows! developed out of Pace e Bene’s Nurturing a Culture of Nonviolence Project. It’s workshop, curriculum, and audio and video resources are grounded in the four-fold conviction that:
This project creates a process in which participants articulate their longings for a peaceable way of life.
John Paul Puno directed a film for this project entitled Peace Grows. This film explores how, as wars rage on street corners and continents, cultures of peace are becoming a quiet global phenomenon. Through lives of nonviolence, everyday people are re-seeding our planet with peace. It is often “invisible” because, unlike violence, the events of peaceful living are normally not headlined in the mass media.
