BLESSING A MOST SACRED BOOK OFTEN USED IN SACRILEGIOUS WAYS
 
HOLD IT UP, OPEN IT UP, READ IT, AND PROCLAIM IT IN THE DEEDS OF YOUR LIFE,
THE WORDS OF YOUR LIPS, AND WITH THE LOVE IN YOUR HEART

JEREMIAH 22: 15-17
THE PROPHET OBSERVES
 
15 Does it make you a king to excel in cedar? Did not your father have food and drink? He administered justice and righteousness, and so it went well with him. 16 He took up the cause of the poor and needy, and so it went well. Is this not what it means to know Me?” declares the Lord. 17 “But your eyes and heart are set on nothing except your own dishonest gain, on shedding innocent blood, on practicing extortion and oppression.”
 
We continue to join with people and peaceful protesters throughout the World in working for the cause of that justice which causes peace to flow like a mighty river. Our broken-hearts are now open hearts where all are welcome. Let there be peace on Earth and, indeed, let it begin with me, let it begin with us.
