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.


The Things of God

You may have a highly polished shoe.
But your footsteps are no grander
Than those made by a barefoot man.

You may have a fine woolen cloak,
But naked your bodyu is no different
From that of a man dressed in rags.

God made the foot, man the shoe.
God made the body, man the cloak.
Cherish the things of God
Above those of man.

—ancient saying from Robert van De Weyer's book
Celtic Praise
