Peace – Thomas Merton

April 24, 2023
Our feathered neighbor 💖💖

Today Denise was making some business cards for me. This is the first time that I have had business cards that don’t have have the specifics of my current call on them. They simply have the denominational seal (Presbyterian Church (U. S. A.)) along with my contact information on them. However, they also have a quote from Thomas Merton’s book No Man Is an Island (also found in the book, A Thomas Merton Reader, p. 125) at the bottom.

This quote represents my own journey from the military ministry to my call to be a peacemaker. — The God of peace is never glorified by human violence.

Dear reader, my prayer for you and for this world is that we can live out the call, in the words of St. Francis of Assisi, to be instruments of God’s peace.
