"As I walked the meditation path," Bishop Gregory said, "what kept coming to my mind was the name that you plan to give the organization that will run the camp and retreat center—'Shalom Place’. My suggestion, therefore, would be to name the path, ‘The Way of Shalom’. As I see it, from birth until death, our lives are spent in search of Shalom—truth, peace, permanence, happiness, wholeness, and health.”
