Peace.

For a lot of folks my age, we think of the peace sign of the 60’s.  Peace was meant in a physical way, stop the war, ban the bomb, peace not hate…

But what I am thinking about is the peace that has the effect of healing, peace that is a balm of soothing, a peace that allows us to live and experience the awe and the wonder of God.

As somebody said:

“Peace is much more than the absence of conflict.”

What would our issues look like if we had a peace of soul, a peace of heart about those things…what would it look like if instead of doubt, worry, fear…anger…what would those things look like if we could be at peace with the situations that brought about the doubt, worry, fear and anger…

Just some thoughts…
