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.



Happy are those who hear
the joyful call to worship,
for they will walk
in the light of your presence, LORD.
—Psalms 89:15

But the time is coming and is already here
when true worshipers will worship the Father
in spirit and in truth.
The Father is looking for anyone
who will worship him that way.
—Jesus in John 4:23 (New Living Translation)

No one else holds or has held
the place in the heart of the world which Jesus holds.
Other gods have been as devoutly worshipped;
no other man has been so devoutly loved.
—John Knox (1510-1572)

I never knew how to worship until I knew how to love.
—Henry Ward Beecher (1813-1887)

Jesus calls us from the worship,
Of the vain world's golden store,
From each idol that would keep us,
Saying, "Christian, love Me more!"
-Cecil F. Alexander (1818-1895)

The highest form of worship
is the worship of unselfish Christian service.
—Billy Graham (1918- )

Some go to church to see and be seen,
Some go there to say they have been,
Some go there to sleep and nod,
But few go there to worship God
