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.


Is this the road?

a scene from the movie, The Nativity

Men travel bravely by a thousand roads,
Some broad and lined with palaces,
some steep and hard and lonely,
some that blindly twist through
tangled jungles where there is no light;
And mostly they are traveled thoughtlessly.

But once a year an ancient question comes
To every traveler passing on his way,
A question that can stab and burn and bless:

"Is this the road that leads to Bethlehem?".

—Robert Speer, Five Minutes A Day
