Take a ride on the ‘peace train’ Day Five 1


Day Five Peace train series

Peace, what is it?

Okay then let’s try certainty – reducing our world and lives to what is known so that we might ‘contain the fear’ and be prepared for exactly what is coming.

But, this is not possible. It’s a fantasy reserved for those who ignore the complexities of this world, our belief systems and our own experiences.

Write about how peace has rescued you in your own experiences.

How does peace fit in with your belief system?

    Its funny. When I read this the first time I struggled to understand what you asking us to do and to find anything to write. But, having read it again and sat with the question I realise that peace has rescued me, in praise and worship, in surrendering to God and in opening my heart to find that I am not exposed. Thank you for asking the questions Kelley so we can ponder ad find the answers.
