Thought for the Day MDCCLII

 Psalm 133 is a song of ascents, stating how good it is when the people live together in unity, comparing it to precious oil poured onto a person's head. This means a great deal when we see the world around us and see precious little unity and too much dissension

Years ago a Church Minister from Northern Ireland told my wife that the reason the Troubles kept going in spite of prayers was that they prayed for victory, not peace. It is important to stand up for principles, it is important to see justice done, it is also important to reach out to others and compromise where possible, and to see there is humanity among some of the people whom we may be opposed to for very good reasons
