Navigating family relationships

"Think global. Act local.”

I have heard this expression in many contexts. Today, I invite you to consider it in terms of family relationships.

If you have a vision and a hope for a peaceful world, strive to bring this harmony into your “local” relationships: those within your family.

Sometimes these are the relationships we struggle with most, and they often provide the most opportunities to apply our growing knowledge of how to live well.

As contributions for this issue came across my desk, I noticed the positive impact the ideas had on my own relationships. I’m confident that, if you apply the ideas presented here, you will observe similar changes.

Navigating family relationships can be a beautiful thing. And who knows? Maybe your local intention and action will make a global impact.

"Loving our neighbor as ourselves is simply not dealing dishonestly or unfairly with people, not harboring hatred or burning with revenge against them, not speaking ill of them or slandering them, not committing adultery with their spouses, and not doing anything of that nature to them."
