January-March 2016 Baptist peacemaker The Journal of BPFNA ~ Bautistas por la Paz Vol 36 No 1 Return our minds and hearts to gratitude, O Lord! We live comfortable lives, enjoy many freedoms, share abundant resources; and struggle daily not to lead self-centered and protected lives; Teach us again the truth about ourselves: that we were born for more than self-entertainment, for active, and not passive, care; Teach us, who so often remain spectators in life, to cast aside our carelessness and fear of service; Remind us of Your face in others, when we see the eyes of hunger, abandon, and hopelessness; help us to recognize Your features in the friendless stare of a neighbor; Open our hearts to Your silent presence in the want of those who tread the city streets; And teach us once again that You were not crucified in a clean cathedral between two candles, but on a garbage dump between two abandoned thieves; That we may share Your passion for changing wretchedness into treasured living. art by Robert Darden -Daniel G. Bagby Witnessing to God's peace rooted in justice ~ working together until it comes. Testificando sobre la paz de Dios enraizada en justicia ~ Trabajando hasta que llegue.
