Today is International Day of Peace.

We all long for world peace. When he walked on earth, Jesus said, ‘Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled neither let them be afraid’ (John 14).

Recently, I heard Johnny Shahwan speak about his peace-making, community-building work in Bethlehem, where Jesus was born: http://www.beit-al-liqa.de/?lang=en. Johnny spoke about ‘building a generation of peace and caring for the whole family’ and ‘sharing the love of Christ in a practical way’, and he encouraged us ‘to pray for peace and to be doers of peace’, inspired by the Prince of Peace.

‘For to us a child is born,
    to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
    and his name shall be called
Wonder, Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.’

(Isaiah 9:6)
