These recent wet summer afternoons and early evenings have been difficult for me to go out for good bike ride or energetic walk. I don’t mind the rain so much as I fear a lightening bolt hitting me in the kneecap. However, with our new grass laid out on the front lawn the rain is a welcome sight. Let's hope it takes root and keeps green and growing. Grass is a curious thing. We want it green, thick and plentiful, but for aesthetic reasons we keep cutting it down and yet it's determined to keep coming back. If grass had any consciousness what would it tell us? "Stop mowing me down or I'm gonna stop growing!"? It's in its nature to bounce back and be more determined. Such is our human nature. We will not be out done by evil.
These past couple of months we have witnessed some horrible acts of violence. Modern media has placed within our living rooms the vices of humanity. It comes with little warning and quickly as it's playing out. We can only sit back feeling helpless and struck by it's barbaric nature. Turning the channel seems to be a habit for many of us. As people of Faith and conscience we know better. Yet it's hard not to give into judgement on the various cases presented. In the least we are called to be peace makers. "Blessed are the peace makers for they shall be called children of God." Mt.5:9. Each of us has within our circle of influence an ability to sow a seed of peace with our words, actions and mood. So, let’s be the peace makers God has called us to be. Not in some distant country or city, but here in our own city of Tallahassee and house holds.
Peace and Good Will,
The Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee
