Be at peace today. Even if it is one of your worst days: be at peace. What hurts us will one day cease. What worries us will be resolved. What we long for will be revealed. Even if we are engaged in a great struggle right now, we can be at peace in our mind and heart through the Spirit, for life is more than what limits us. There is an endless love surrounding us, broader and deeper than any ocean. There is beauty and hope and healing. There is change and there is renewal. Remember this promise in sunshine and in shadow. And be at peace. Be at peace today.
Gratefula for the wise ones in our midst. Today’s reflection by Stephen Charleston.
Another act of senseless, yet intentional violence. So disturbing, so heartbreaking, so dangerous.
In these moments of horror and destruction we can find the courage to move into this danger. Move in to collect all shattered hope. To remold and hold that hope until those wading in the rubble can gather their balance and look beyond, able to imagine a future.
We must rise above fear and sit. Sit with those grieving and injured in their sadness and hopelessness until hope returns.
