Blessed Are The Peacemakers
Today is Remembrance Sunday and in less than an hour we will remember and honour those who have paid the ultimate price for a greater cause. I will also reflect on the importance of our leadership as Christ's people in seeking peace.
As I ate breakfast today the national news on the radio informed me that two Christian factions in the church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem engaged in a turf brawl yesterday. There are six "warring" groups in the church that marks the historic site of the resurrection and every once in a while they "duke it out." This is the second time this year. So much for blessed are the peacemakers.
They will know we are Christians by our love, by our love...
