Christ the King

“The kingdom, Jesus taught, is right here–present yet hidden, immanent yet transcendent. It is at hand–among us and beyond us, now and not-yet. The kingdom of heaven, he said, belongs to the poor, the meek, the peacemakers, the merciful, and those who hunger and thirst for God. It advances not through power and might, but through missions of mercy, kindness, and humility. In this kingdom, many who are last will be first and many who are first will be last.” Rachel Held Evans

“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.”                     —Thornton Wilder

We Are Tired of War!

“To replace the old paradigm of war with a new paradigm of waging peace, we must be pioneers who can push the boundaries of human understanding. We must be doctors who can cure the virus of violence. We must be soldiers of peace who can do more than preach to the choir. And we must be artists who will make the world our masterpiece.”                                                            ~Paul Chappell

In which we learn about life and love from Winnie the Pooh and Friends

“If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together, there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart… I’ll always be with you.”
-Winnie the Pooh, A.A. Milne

There is Always Light

“World peace must develop from inner peace. Peace is not
just mere absence of violence. Peace is, I think, the manifestation
of human compassion.” ― Dalai Lama XIV

Honesty and Unity

“Humans are vulnerable and rely on the kindnesses of the earth and the sun; we exist together in a sacred field of meaning.”
– Joy Harjo (member of Muscogee, Creek Nation)

Caregiving As A Community

Nothing is sweet or easy about community. Community is a fellowship of people who do not hide their joys and sorrows but make them visible to each other as a gesture of hope.        Henri J.M. Nouwen

Love Will Be Our Judge

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.” – John 14:27

What Then Must We Do?

Focus: “We must learn to acknowledge that the creation is full of mystery; we will never entirely understand it. We must abandon arrogance and stand in awe. We must recover the sense of the majesty of creation, and the ability to be worshipful in its presence. For I do not doubt that it is only on the condition of humility and reverence before the world that our species will be able to remain in it.” – Wendell Berry
