This article, originally delivered as a keynote address at the 1999 Chicago World Mission Institute, points to personal and communal transformation as the key to societal change, particularly in regard to the world's refugees and displaced people. We must, in other words, "change the borders of our minds." As the article's last paragraph expresses it: As we approach the twenty-first century, we can change the way we think and act. We can change the borders of our minds and move toward creating a peace that can take root and flourish in our homes, in our communities, and throughout our world. We can effect change if we envision and believe that we do belong to one another, if we are willing to act with justice; and if we see that, in the words of the poet Archibald MacLeish, "we are brothers (and sisters), riders on the earth together."
