Peace this Christmas
Revelations 9-11, Psalms 138, 141
May all the kings of the earth praise you, Lord, when they hear what you have decreed.
Christmas has arrived, and from many corners you hear of peace and good will. Yet, we know there is hatred and tyranny. It is a worthy prayer that the psalmist offers of all the kings praising God when they hear his word. The peace we hunger for will not be found in the world. But on this Christmas morning may you know peace in the arms of him who once lay in a manger. He who was held lovingly by his mother, Mary (and others), holds you in his arms. Merry Christmas!
