Make Investments in Peace
Welcome to Monday of a new week. If you are sheltering at home, maybe this doesn't feel like a new week or a Monday. Maybe this day feels like every other day of your recent history.
During worship, yesterday, we began to explore God's New Normal. If you find that your current normal is routine, uncomfortable, boring, or monotonous, I want to encourage you that you have an opportunity. You have an opportunity, right now, to make some investments that have the potential to create a better normal when things "get back to normal."
This week we are focusing on peace, because God's New Normal is a New Normal of Peace. The world in which is live is full of strife, division, and war, but into this place God desires peace.
In worship I encouraged you to make a list of three ways that you can invest in peace this week. Have you made your list yet? What does it look like? How do you plan to implement this peace investment plan into your life? I'd love it if you shared your peace investment list with me so that I can pray for your efforts this week.
I've been working on my list:
1. Help my faith community practice peace.
2. Take two full days away from church work to quiet my soul and seek personal peace.
3. Speak a word of peace each day to my family.
To help you and to help me with my list, I have prepared a daily devotional for you. This devotional is designed to help you think about peace and grow in you understanding of God's peace. I pray that this devotion is helpful to you in your daily life.

Please continue to pray each day at 12:29.
