As we sit on the eve of my favorite holiday (Christmas Eve/Christmas) I’ve taken a few minutes to reflect on recent events, from the fighting in to Syria to senseless killings in my home country.
“And in despair I bowed my head;
“There is no peace on earth,” I said;
“For hate is strong,
And mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!”
It seems we haven’t found that peace yet. But I’m filled with the inspiration that there are many strong hearted men and women who are willing to stand and fight for peace.
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
“God is not dead, nor doth he sleep!
The Wrong shall fail,
the Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men!”
While we pray “Even so come quickly Lord Jesus”, let’s each do our part to fight for peace on earth. For it will only come from the efforts and voices of those courageous enough to defy evil.
