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.


Hate these things first...

Thomas MertonInstead of loving what you think is peace, love others, and love God above all, and instead of hating the people you think are warmongers, hate the appetite and disorder in your own soul, which are also causes of war.

If you love peace, then hate injustice, hate tyranny, hate greed—but hate these things in yourself first, not in others.
Thomas Merton (1915-1968)
