A Message about Peace from Rev. Jo
The Prime Minister of Great Britain Neville Chamberlain (1869 -1940) is remembered for the words ‘peace for our time’. He was speaking about one aspect of peace, namely the absence of war. But, peace has a richer and more profound meaning. The Book of Common Prayer includes in its pages the following words ‘Give peace in our time O Lord because there is none other that fighteth for us, but only thou, O God.’ As part of Evening Prayer these words form part of a prayer that acknowledges that it is God alone who grants peace, mercy, salvation, righteousness and beauty to the human heart. Peace is an important word for us as Christians, it is what our Lord has bequeathed to us; ‘Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.’ (John 14:27) Peace is something we all seek. Peace for the world, for our nation, in our hearts, for those we love. God’s peace grows within us if we open our hearts and welcome God to dwell there in. Let us plant a tree of peace in our hearts, a tree that will grow and bear fruit; fruit we can share with our world, our nation, and our brothers and sisters of every race and nation.

Shalom, my friends, Shalom, my friends,
Shalom, Shalom.
May peace be with you, may peace be with you,
Shalom, Shalom.
