Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.
In these days of wrath and judgment,
it is all the more vital for the heart of Christ
to blaze up in the world and in history.
The church is sent into the world for this purpose:
in the midst of the mounting waves of panic,
in the midst of the furious breakers of spilt blood,
the church must fling itself against the waves
and bring the banner of love
to those who are drowning in loveless wrath.

is a meager shadow of the life preserver
He throws to us in our distress,
His heart beating for ours
we are His body on earth.
We desire His heart, we mirror His love
