The most amazing fact about Jesus . . . is that he found God in disorder and imperfection—and told us that we must do the same or we would never be content on this earth.

REFLECTION

Wage peace with your breath.

Breathe in firemen and rubble,

breathe out whole buildings

and flocks of redwing blackbirds.

Breathe in terrorists and breathe out sleeping children

and freshly mown fields.

Breathe in confusion and breathe out maple trees.

from the poem, “Wage Peace,” by Judyth Hill
