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.


Love in Action

But what do you think? A man had two sons, and he came to the first and said, "Son, go work today in the vineyard." And he answered, "I will not"; but afterward he regretted it and went. The man came to the second and said the same thing; and he answered, "I will, sir"; but he did not go. Which of the two did the will of his father? They said, "The first."
—Jesus Christ in Matthew 21:28-31a

When its all said and done, more will be said than done.

Promises can never take the place of performance. Fine words are never a substitute for fine deeds. Let's be a people of fine words and fine deeds
—William Barclay

Let’s not talk about love. Let’s not sing about love. Let’s put love into action and make it real.
—Clarence Jordan in the Cotton Patch Gospel version of I John
