Interfaith Harmony Week Day 3
You are the peace of all things calm
You are the place to hide from harm
You are the light that shines in dark
You are the heart’s eternal spark
You are the door that’s open wide
You are the guest who waits inside
You are the stranger at the door
You are the calling of the poor
You are my Lord and with me still
You are my love, keep me from ill
You are the light, the truth, the way
You are my Saviour this very day.
                                                                   Celtic Oral Tradition
                                                                   1st Millennium
The Celts is an ancient race of peoples and culture who once lived throughout much of Europe. Both Scottish and Irish consider themselves Celts.
The Celts believed, so it seems, in the “Otherworld” sometimes found on distant islands or under the waters. The stories of lore and myth portray a beautiful woman coming to a man leading him in a glass boat to the “Otherworld” where darkness, death, sickness, and evil are no more.
Myth and lore always imply ethics, vision, and hope. Perhaps the “Otherworld” is not so far away. Perhaps “Peace” comes taking us by the hand to a new understanding of life as it is. May the beautiful Lady of Peace come to you today. May she take you by the hand as she touches your heart. May you see now what you long for in the future. May you not only be peaceful, may you be the source of peace to everyone you meet.
These verses remind us of a verse from the Book of the Acts of the Apostles. It states “‘For in God we live and move and have our being.” (Acts17:28) If we could hold this thought in our hearts throughout the day, what difference would it make in our lives?
