Working for peace in a violent world is not easy. Lack of tangible progress and overemphasis on our human endeavors can combine to lead us into despair. This month let us recommit ourselves to peace, but even more so to a deeper relationship with the Prince of Peace. Let us not simply ask Christ to bless our endeavors, but rather ask what of Christ’s endeavors we are to be a part of.
My suspicion is that if we do so, we will be in for some grace-filled and unpredictable surprises.
Like this morning’s snow.
Blessings and Shalom
