For this week:
Watchword - Matthew 3:2
Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near. NRSV
Questions for Reflection
Look for places where the wolf and the lamb lie down together in peace.
- Where do you see that peace in your relationships, in your family or circle of friends, in the neighborhood, the city, the nation, and the world?
- Even within yourself, where has peace been forged between previously warring factions?
A Morning Prayer
As I rise, O God, I give you thanks for safety in the night, for rest from my labors, for
another day in this creation. Turn my eyes toward what is noble. Teach me to see hope
where it is veiled. Give me the wisdom to desire the good. Help me to love not only those
I encounter but myself as well, for with you I know my many frailties and failings. Let
peace reign. Amen.
