Inspirational Quote from Bill Kreidler

In this clip, Quaker educator and author William J. Kreidler of Educators for Social Responsibility presents one of his favorite quotes for conflict resolvers. In February of 1996 he addressed the Resolving Conflict Creatively Program’s (RCCP) annual conference. In his talk he explored the ways that dreams and visions can promote and sustain our efforts to create a more peaceful world. In particular Bill focused on the work of artist William Hicks who painted numerous versions of The Peaceable Kingdom – where in the words of Isaiah, the lamb lies down with the lion. He notes the complexity of visions of social justice and that “the subject of the dream is the dreamer.”
