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.


Bear with Others

Forgive, forget. Bear with the faults of others as you would have them bear with yours. Be patient and understanding.

Life is too short to be vengeful or malicious.
The Rt. Rev. Phillips Brooks (1835-1893)

    Amen! I'm considering printing this to pass around as I venture into the world today. Lord knows I needed it yesterday. (Much crankiness out there this season) :) We need to remember that we're all in the same recession.

    Y'all have a BLESSED day!!! "Bear the bears!"

    Sounds like really good advice for maintaining a marriage.

    Amen; just what I needed to hear today.

    I agree with Kelly about the crankiness (and the pain) out there these days.

    Nice piece you wrote in the Episcopal Life on Thanksgiving,
