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.


Do not pray for easy lives

Do not pray for easy lives,
but pray to be stronger men.
Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers,
but pray for power equal to your tasks.

Then the accomplishing of your work
shall be no miracle, but you shall be a miracle.
Every day you shall wonder at yourself
and the richness of life
which has come to you
by the grace of God.
The Rt. Rev. Phillips Brooks (1835-1893)
