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.


Abundance and Providence

Greed and selfishness, which are the cause of most wars and human conflicts, are rooted in an underlying anxiety about material goods. With the psychology of scarcity, there is not enough to go around, so I'm going to hold on to what I have and get more if I can.

Jesus much preferred a psychology of abundance shared, there is plenty to go around if we let go of our anxiety and greed.
—the Rev. Richard Fewkes

When we see the lilies spinning in distress, taking thought to manufacture their own loveliness. When we see the birds all building barns for store...twill then be time to worry, not before.
—Uncle Ben’s Quote book
