The Mane Point Salutes Blog for Peace

(Posted in response to BlogBlast For Peace: A Revolution of Words ~ June 4, 2008)


Today, during the Blog Blast for Peace, these words from the Apostle Paul (written to the early Christian church at Philippi) seem particularly poignant:

“Rejoice in the Lord always.
I will say it again: Rejoice!
Let your gentleness be evident to all.
The Lord is near.
Do not be anxious about anything,
but in every situation,
by prayer and petition,
with thanksgiving,

present your requests to God.
And the peace of God,
which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts
and your minds in Christ Jesus."

"Finally, brothers and sisters,
whatever is true,
whatever is noble,
whatever is right,

whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely,
whatever is admirable –
if anything is excellent or praiseworthy –
think about such things.

Whatever you have learned
or received
or heard from me,
or seen in me –
put it into practice.
And the God of peace will be with you.”

(Philippians 4:4-9, NIV)

“Dona Nobis Pacem” is Latin for “Grant Us Peace.”
May this be our prayer on June 4th and always.
