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.


It's already yours

A scout from our troop with the monumentA little boy came to the Washington Monument, noticed a park service ranger standing by it and said, "I want to buy it." The ranger stooped down and said, "How much do you have?" The boy reached into his pocket and pulled out 25 cents. The guard said, "That's not enough."

The boy replied, "I thought you would say that." So he pulled out nine cents more. The guard looked down at the boy and said, "You need to understand three things:

  • First, 34 cents is not enough, 34 million dollars is not enough to buy the Washington Monument.
  • Second, the Washington Monument is not for sale.
  • And third, if you are an American citizen, the Washington Monument
    already belongs to you."

The same is true of God's love:

  • You can not earn it.
  • You can not buy it.
  • You already have it.
