In my younger years as a parent, I'd occasionally sigh, "oh just give me a minute's peace!"--little did I know then that that would become my life's mantra: give us peace. But today at our church's annual cantata, called "Dona nobis pacem-give us peace" I would be profoundly reminded that the demand, "give us" is very childish. A grown people of faith, peace is up to us. One of the quotes (or misquotes-I never get these things right) is from Mother Teresa: Peace isn't something we wish for; it's something we do.
May you BE peace for someone today.
