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.


Internal Change

I gave up coffee creamer for Lent one year. By the end of the tenth day, I began to love black coffee.

That's the year I learned that it isn't giving up things that counts. Me? I became aware that only internal change really counts.

    I agree completely. It's part of the spiritual journey, not giving up some random material thing. For me it's adding to connection with God and continuing on my journey with enhanced awareness of the Holy.
