From our Correspondence

     I’ve heard it said that when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.  And that has certainly been the case in my lifetime.  Just last month I heard about Peace Pilgrim for the first time.

Peace Pilgrim in History

Peace Pilgrim is back – more optimistic than on her last cross-America hike to Seattle three years ago.
     “I used to feel like a voice in the  wilderness.  Now I’m on the popular side,” she told a circle of silver-haired women at the Des Moines United Methodist Church....
