A truly discouraged people look to their God, the source of comfort and strength, to help them turn their lives from conflict and unfair behaviours toward justice and peace. A word of comfort comes from Isaiah, “See, it is God that is mighty. It is God that gives life meaning. Like a courier with a life-giving message, God tenderly tucks us into her pouch and carries us close to her heart” (from the Seasons Bible story, December 7, p. 64).
This week have a conversation with a friend. Share your “picture” of what peace and justice look like. Listen carefully as your friend shares theirs. Remind each other that we are all in life and community together and with God.
