Day 26 -January 26, 2013

“Let us then pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.”  -Romans 14:19

Moving the Peace of Christ from the church sanctuary into the community!

“Make something portable (or that seems portable) that normally isn’t”  -from 365 A Daily Creativity Journal by Noah Scalin

This is a picture of one of the stained glass windows in the sanctuary in my church building.  The light shines through it out into the darkness in our community at night.  Is that enough?  I don’t think so.  The pursuit of peace, Christ’s peace, is not an easy task.  Yet we are called to a kingdom of “righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit” (Romans 14:17).  I would love to be able to just pack it up into my little red wagon and take it out with me where ever I go!

“The most important act of peacemaking?  Your next one.”  -Colman McCarthy

“Most people think of peace as a state of Nothing Bad Happening, or Nothing Much Happening.  Yet if peace is to overtake us and make us the the gift of serenity and wellbeing, it will have to be the state of Something Good Happening.”   -E. B. White
