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.


Not because we are good

The Christian does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us; just as the roof of a sunhouse does not attract the sun because it is bright, but becomes bright because the sun shines on it.
—C.S.Lewis (1898-1963)

    Is this true? Because every morning at three for the past two weeks I've been startled awake by thoughts of "You're getting older and what have you done?" "You need to be better!" "You could have done more for that family or stranger!" "You shouldn't have gotten that upset or angry in that situation!"

    Am I under a storm cloud where the sun doesn't shine? There has got to be more that I can do as a Christian. Right? When do we know that He is working on us? Do you just become different?
