Sunday Reflection: Oneness

Today's reflection is brought to you by Ephesians 2:13-18

You are our peace,
when we see that we are all created
to be one harmonious family in you.

Walls of division will fall
when we recognize you
in each other.

Hostilities will die
when we find compassion for all who suffer
because suffering comes to us all.

Your peace is clear and present
when we focus on what unites us
rather than what divides us --
when we reconcile and love.

In listening to our loving Shepherd's voice
rather than arguing about what you say,
we find peace.

Help us,
O God,
to hear you
in all things,
but especially,
in each other.

+Amen.
