Come, Prince of Peace

From the ruined cities of Syria to the opposition front benches,

​it dominates our conversation:

​wars and rumours of war.

 

Shutting our eyes is as merciless as it is ineffectual

​and bombing can only contain the evil,

​not heal it.

 

“See to it that you are not alarmed…”

 

Come, Prince of Peace!

Matthew 24: 6-8

6 You will hear of wars and rumours of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.8 All these are the beginning of birth-pains.
