All life is
Water is life.
Peace, Power and Righteousness to all nations.
We need to understand the cultural foundation of these terms.
Peace is not just the absence of war, it is a way of being
that promotes deep love and caring. Power is not a military
power, it is the strength that comes from social and political
unity when people are treating each other fairly. Righteousness
is the equity and justice applied to all.
