Signs of the Times

Lasting Foundations

[From the Canadian Churchman, Ottawa]

A lot of people pray for peace and hope that the peace after this war may be permanent but never dream of ending the little wars in their own lives. They tolerate feuds in their family circles and in their business and social circles. If all who read this turned enough to put an end to these little wars, and they will occur to you as you read this, they should be doing something concrete to make the coming peace permanent. We shall never help to get peace in the world as long as the things that make wars abound in our lives.

[From a Message of Anglican Bishops in Britain, as quoted in the United Observer, Toronto]
