Peace to the whole community

"Peace to the whole community, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ." (Ephesians 6:23)

Peace indeed. On earth -- especially some parts of the earth which needs a good dose of peace. Goodwill to all -- especially to those who are approaching Christmas with the taste of dry ashes in their mouth. or knots in their stomach

May hope be our gift. Hope being what writer Jim Wallis describes as "believing in spite of the evidence, and then watching the evidence change."

As you gather at the creche -- at church or in your mind's eye, may you drink from that divine well of peace and hope. And allow yourself to be changed. May that be your gift.

Merry Christmas.

  1. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all the Beloved.

    Thank you for leading the Advent discussions of Ephesians. It was a wonderful opportunity for me to gain some clarity.

    Life is divine.
    Love is its celebration.
    Peace is the promise.

    Peace and Prayers to all the Beloved,
