The General of The Salvation Army has called all Salvationists around the world to pray for peace on Sept. 21st.
Jesus said that peacemakers would be blessed... why not step up and consider yourself blessed this year by hosting a local peace prayer vigil... or gather some friends and pray together - or organize a protest against military spending... let's ask for more money to be allotted to poverty relief than bullets, bombs and guns - call us crazy! ;-) WELL, on second hand, call us blessed!
You can download a poster to get started at justsalvos... be a peacemaker.
Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars... Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.
