“Peace.” Yes, Peace. But… what is it? It is a condition of the mind. It is the absence of warfare. It is a casual way to say goodbye. It is the lack of threat from my enemies. It is a stress-free state. It is harmony with those around me. It is something I offer other churchgoers during the time of greeting. It is a proposal. What does Jesus mean when he offers the disciples peace? As you prepare for worship today consider the meaning of God’s peace for you. In what ways do you experience
the “peace” of the Lord, which passes understanding, in your life?
