Searching for Sabbath



t
~ ~ ~

Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind. 
Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing.

For whoever desires to love life 
and see good days,
let him keep his tongue from evil
and his lips from speaking deceit;
let him turn away from evil and do good;
let him seek peace and pursue it.

-1 Peter: 8-11

In this world we all live in

we must learn to be of one accord

one mind

It means that we must learn to see from another's point of view

it doesn't mean we must give up what we believe in

or let go of what we stand for

but that we must search out the other side

before there is no ground left at all

We are called to bless, to serve,

to love our neighbors as ourselves

to seek peace and pursue it

and peace is not "our way" or "their way"

there is only one way

there is only one love

  4. In the face of national, verbal gnashing, these sacred words carry solace.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
