Summer of '68 echoed central teachings of Jesus 

It was the Summer of 1968. Exams had finished and I was on my way to the University of Peace, in Belgium. It had been recently founded by Pere Dominique Pire, a Dominican priest and the 1958 Nobel Peace Prizewinner. I had been there a few years before and, again, this time I looked forward to the fortnight of study, reflection and meetings with the 40 participants and speakers from around the world, and from every religion and none. It was a magnificent experience.
