One: Uneasiness stems from the unrest in our world. News echoes from our TVs and phones alerting us of turmoil around the globe. From what happens in our communities, schools, and world, it’s often tough to find harmony.
Words between neighbors reflect a dismal connection with fellow children of God. Bullies in schools, workplaces, and other institutions cloud our once happy souls.
Yet even as we stand in the midst of commotion and even when anxiety stirs within our hearts, God is with us. The buzzing of hatred will not be the final noises we hear as God’s song of serenity will rise above the clamor.
Today we light the candle of peace to remember that harmony will abide. The turmoil of the outside world and the unrest in our souls will convert to peace that goes beyond all understanding. The light of peace and hope will transform our world to holy tranquility.
And you will be with us in the peaks and valleys of our journeys, God of Placidness.
