Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


True to our nature

A religion true to its nature must also be concerned about man's social conditions.... Any religion that professes to be concerned with the souls of men and is not concerned with the slums that damn them, the economic conditions that strangle them, and the social conditions that cripple them is a dry-as-dust religion—the rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

If anyone has material posessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him.—I John 3:17

Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are belssed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you visited me.... Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'—Matthew 25:35-36,40
