Learn of me, and listen to my words; walk in the meekness of my Spirit, and you shall have peace in me. - D&C 19:23
"Our hearts are torn and our emotions touched when each day's coverage of local or global news brings yet another story of conflict and suffering and, all too often, open warfare," said President Howard W. Hunter, then president of the Quorum of the Twelve, during the October 1992 general conference."Surely our prayer is to see the world made a better place in which to live, to see more care and concern for one another, and to see the cause of peace and reassurance increased in every direction and extended to all people. . . .
"As we search for the shore of safety and peace, whether we be individual women and men, families, communities, or nations, Christ is the only beacon on which we can ultimately rely. . . .
"Because many reject [the teachings of Jesus Christ], that is all the more reason why sincere believers in the gospel of Jesus Christ should proclaim its truth and show by example the power and peace of a righteous, gentle life. . . .
"We all have significant opportunity to practice Christianity, and we should try it at every opportunity."
