If the holy potential is in each of us and we recognize it , our behavior toward others must be deeply affected. How could we abuse or treat them as enemies? Must we not try to heal relationships fractured by anger, fear, and incomprehension, making use of the universal capacity for peacemaking that flows from 'that of God'? to do so effectively involves understanding the nature of unpeaceful relations. But some methods are always appropriate: recognizing and responding to the good in the other, establishing and maintaining a relationship of trust, listening, perseverance.
