Let us meet this day in peace – Rev Gareth Darlow

Peace is a decision we make
not when things are going well
but when they’re going badly.

Peace is a decision we make
not when we’re surrounded by friends and wellwishers
but when we find ourselves trapped with people
we secretly
(and sometimes not so secretly)
wish would just go away.

Peace can be hard won,
unstable and dynamic,
hard to define
even when you’re holding it in your hand.

Peace can be dangerous to the one who wields it.
It should probably come with a warning sign.

Peace is a decision we make
not once
but over and over
and over…

…and over again.

Let us meet this day in peace.
