Grant us peace! 


The idea for this year's peace globe came from a project at my church. This summer, 49 members of my congregation ranging from age three to 80+ were each given canvases which were one foot square. Each canvas had a bit of what looked like a random shape on it, but the color and design of the rest of the canvas was left up to the painter. It was only when the 49 completed canvases were placed side by side in rows of seven that it became clear that the shapes were not random, but formed a recognizable pattern: that of a dove.





I found this very inspiring, the notion that individually, we have our own shapes and colors and may seem to have nothing in common with anyone else, but when we come together, we form a beautiful work of art. And that art of creation can give us wings with which to soar.

Soar, today and always. Peace be with you.
