Do Justice to Make Peace

Our world is bizarre , yet it is wonderful.

War and violence and distrust and deceit is indeed everywhere.

AND there are people of peace lurking or living in all corners of the world.

I begin each day with reflections and action. Online action always includes the link above, where my simple and free visit to several sites can help build a world where justice is normal, not unusual.

Where Peace is the normal condition of life, I pray.

I share this scripture lesson with you in peace, today. I thank the friend who sent it to me, too.

A reading from the Letter of Paul to the Ephesians. (Eph 2:13-18)

Now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

For Christ is our peace; in his flesh he has made both Jewish people and Gentile people into one and has broken down the dividing wall, that is, the hostility between us.

Christ has abolished the law with its commandments and ordinances, that he might create in himself one new humanity in place of the two, thus making peace, and might reconcile both groups to God in one body through the cross, thus putting to death that hostility through it.

So Christ Jesus came and proclaimed peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near; for through Christ both of us have access in one Spirit to God.

May peace fill your heart today.
