Weekly Moravian Message: September 10, 2017

Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost — September 10, 2017

“For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.” (Matthew 18:20)

Where Is Peace?

In a time of conflict, dispute, animosity,

partisan bickering, irreconcilable differences a time of Sides . . .

God is My Rock and My Salvation,

 

I am right (and you are wrong),

I stand oppressed (while you remain oppressive),

I have been maligned (when you spread gossip),

I embrace facts (though you create rumors),

I persevere faultless (as you sin before God).

 

 

To your brother/sister, go;

To your sister/brother, talk;

With your sibling, listen;

In simplicity, humility, honesty, and gentleness, the Peace of God will Be.

 

 

For you will gain back a brother, sister, friend;

For you will gain back your family;

For what you bind on each is bound in eternity;

For what you free for each is freed forever;

For when you find redemption, it is redemption for all;

For when you gather as two or three . . .

I am there among you,

I am Redemption,

and I am Peace.
