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.

Our common way

If we are to follow Christ, it must be in our common way of spending every day. If we are to live unto God at any time or in any place, we are to live unto him in all times and in all places. If we are to use anything as the gift of God, we are to use everything as his gift.
William Law (1686-1781)

    This sounds a lot like learning how to play chess. The rules are easy, putting them into practice effectively is very difficult.

    Some days I feel I am living my faith, in the spiritual groove so to speak. Otherdays I feel totally disconnected. Like Teddy Roosevelt said much better is the man who strives valiantly even though he may fall short. It is in the effort, though the falling down and getting back up that we find our way.

    Part of today's Scripture reading from Proverns 8:11 says:

    For wisdom is better than rubies, And all the things one may desire cannot be compared with her.
