We have just a few days now till the celebration of the Incarnation! We will have much to celebrate. As a people of God we will hold up to the world the very notion that peace and love are real and viable.

This year perhaps more than most we will come to Christmas services facing many questions about the darkness we see about us in our global village. It will be easy for us to look at problem near and far from home and pray that someone somewhere finds a solution. Bur Christmas is for us that time when we declare that we will claim our mortal duty, we will make the light and peace of Christ real,

Etty Hillesus – facing grave danger and darkness offered these words –

Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace, and to reflect it toward others. And the more peace there is in us, the more peace there will also be in our troubled world.

So as we face tragedy and terror in Australia, Pakistan, The Middle East or hear at home – we might the advice of Etty and reclaim the peace that we have within us that we may share it with others. The more peace there is in us, the more peace there will be in the world …..
