No, I’m not talking about Kony 2012, or the Middle East, or any of that; though those are good causes. I’m talking about “the peace that surpasses all understanding” and the fact that I don’t seem to have it.
Christ teaches that he is and will be our peace; that by dwelling in him, giving him our cares and worries, we will experience peace in all aspects of life. Even in mundane things like mowing the lawn, or tragic things like death, sickness, and deprivation. Oddly enough, sometimes I think I would be more at peace in the midst of an apocalypse than I am in my daily life.
