Gloria: The Peace That Passed Understanding

Christmas Eve, Tuesday, December 24th, 2019

It seems that from the beginning, from as early as the book of beginnings, Genesis, God has been searching for us. Like Adam and Eve after eating the forbidden fruit we have tried to hide from God because we are naked and ashamed. But God loves us. God loves us, each and every one of us. And God has given to us the ministry of reconciliation. The world wants us to choose sides. But choosing sides is the Devil’s mischief because ol’ Scratch knows that if we are fighting with each other, we are not living into our call of reconciliation. The ministry of reconciliation is the Christian mission. Proclaiming God’s peace is the Christian’s calling. It is our sole work, no matter what our profession or calling.   “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among all with whom God is pleased.”
