It seems we live in a world bent on war and filled with rumors of war. Nation against nation and brother against brother, hate seems to be the order of the day and civility is a long-dead casualty. The Bible’s chock full of wars, too, leading many to wonder if God is a God of war. It is not God, though, who created humanity to live in violence, but humanity who chooses violence. It is our history, not God’s. He winds up tainted by being part of our story, but the story of God is a story of peace. And that peace begins within. Winning the battle within – this Sunday at Mendham Hills.
