Poem of the Day: The Biography by Thomas Merton
“We who were formerly no people at all, and who knew of no peace, are now called to be…a church…of peace. True Christians do not know vengeance. They are the children of peace. Their hearts overflow with peace. Their mouths speak peace, and they walk in the way of peace.” – Menno Simons, Anabaptist leader, who died on this day in 1561 (quote via Kurt Willems)
- The Other Journal: Beautiful new poem by Tania Runyan on prayer.
Thanks be to God for this new day, may it be full of beauty and grace!
