Verse of the Day
I have said this to you, so that in me you may have peace. In the world you face persecution. But take courage, I have conquered the world.
Voice of the Day
Hugging is a beautiful Western custom, and we from the East would like to contribute the practice of conscious breathing to it. When you hold a child in your arms, or hug your mother, or your husband, or your friend, if you breathe in and out three times, your happiness will be multiplied at least tenfold.
Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace Is Every Step, p. 85.
Prayer of the Day
O God of peace, you weave your way through our hearts to share with us covenantal love. May we broaden our understanding of being peacemakers in our world today. Grant this in the name of Jesus whose birth heralded peace on earth. Amen.
