Peace

peace 2015

My wish for you and the world, is Peace.

When I was a kid we would attend the Christmas eve service at our Episcopal church. One of the traditions during the service was the passing of peace from one person to another. It was always a festive and rather loud time during the otherwise traditional service. You would greet one another with a hug or a handshake and tell the person “I give you peace”. As a kid it didn’t mean much to me, other than a chance to get up, move around, and see friends. But as an adult now I realize how important the message of peace really is.

So my wish for you today and for the year to come is the greeting and sharing of peace. Pass it on to your family, friends, co-workers, the cashier at the grocery store, the stranger you encounter on the street. ┬áLet’s spread peace and love worldwide.
