Peace

Every warrior's boot used in battle and every garment rolled in blood will be destined for burning, will be fuel for the fire.

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders.

And he will be called Wonderful Counsellor,
Mighty God,
Everlasting Father,
Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end.

(Isaiah 9:5-7)

I can't do better, at this time of year, than echo the line that Peter has sent to us: "May the Lord help us to live these words out in our time!"
