Gustavo Parajón shows us the art and courage of peacemaking

His courage was astonishing,
then his empathy built communities

Our world desperately needs to learn from peacemakers! Just look at the global headlines, each morning, and you’ll agree: There must be a better way to live together.

That’s why our publishing house is launching: Healing the World—Gustavo Parajón, Public Health and Peacemaking Pioneer. In this inspiring, true biography, readers will meet this seemingly ordinary fellow who stepped into situations that the most courageous warrior would fear—except that Gustavo Parajón was armed with his faith in his God-given talent to defuse confrontation with empathy.

This week, our Read The Spirit Cover Story is a 3-minute video in which co-author Daniel Buttry tells about one such confrontation and how Gustavo turned it into a moment of communal grace.


Yes, peace is possible,
if we act together as Parajon did.
