There are things happening all around us that we cannot control.
Other things always have been and always shall be within the realm of our control or influence. We should work on them.
"Where there is hatred, let me sow love."
It takes courage to be a peacemaker. Peacemakers stand in the middle of the hostilities and deflect the bullets and blows with their own bodies, souls, and reputations. They seldom emerge unscathed.
Where are the instruments of God's peace in the world? Are we praying to be counted among them?
