 On Vocation

Show Summary Details


This chapter argues that the whole of peacebuilding could be summed up as finding and building voice. The journey toward change that people make requires more than a strategy of good ideas or technique. Fundamentally, it requires a willingness to risk and great vulnerability. They are stepping into the unknown, into the mystery of risk. The journey of voice finds its source at the level of life and vocation.

Keywords: peacebuilding; risk; conflict resolution; voice
