Stories from centuries of Quaker peacemaking have much to offer those of us seeking to practice peace today. I don't know about you, but I need guidance and inspiration for the humble, daily walk of practicing peace. Being preached at doesn't help, nor does being told to suppress my anger and be nice. Nor, in fact, does having peacemaking saints and heroes held up and idealized, because I compare myself to them and feel inadequate.
