Unpeace is the spiritual pandemic of our age. Our daily newsfeeds remind us that we live in an unpeaceful world of spiraling violence, growing antagonisms, deepening divisions, and chronic anxiety. Against this background of turmoil and conflict, the Serenity Prayer can be a source of hope and peace.
Countless people, whether religious or not, have found that this prayer has helped them to find peace in the midst of their hurried, hassled, and hectic lives. Innumerable people recovering from alcoholism and other addictions pray this prayer daily as part of their twelve-step recovery program. What the prayer teaches us is that, if we’re going to be peacemakers in a strife-filled and hostile world, we first have to seek peace within our own hearts and lives. We cannot share what we do not possess.
Join us for this summer sermon series as, together, we begin our quest for a deeper peace and serenity.
