PASSING THE PEACE
To all who are ashamed for what you have done—peace be with you.
To all who cry hot tears for the dead—peace be with you.
To the abusers who have no way to be restored and grieve their actions—peace be with you.
To those who doubted and were wrong—peace be with you.
To the fearful in their hiding places—peace be with you.
Peace will be with us. Peace to the future.
Emmanuel—God with us.
