liturgy.

Just as Jesus broke down the walls of hostility that used to keep us separate from each other, leaving peace in their place, so let Jesus be our peace (Ephesians 2:11). Let our daughters and sons be known as peacemakers in this world (Matthew 5:9) and use us as your ambassadors of reconciliation (II Corinthians 5:20). Plant a seed of peace in New York and in Kabul, in Washington DC and in Baghdad, in Madrid and in Morocco, in Gaza and in Jerusalem and in Africa, over there and right here, in them and in us, and let the Garden of Shalom we remember sprout and bloom, we pray in the name of Jesus, who is our peace.
