Day 42

Justice will rule in the wilderness and righteousness in the fertile field. And this righteousness will bring peace. Isaiah 32:16-17 (NLT)

QUIETNESS AND TRUST

When civil rights leader Martin Luther King was accused of ‘disturbing the peace’ by supporting Rosa Parks and the Montgomery Bus Boycott in 1955, he responded, ‘True peace is not merely the absence of tension: it is the presence of justice.’ Later, he added, ‘Without justice, there can be no peace.’ His words find echoes in the wisdom of Isaiah. For society to flourish and be fruitful, peace needs to be built on a foundation of justice and righteousness. Injustice is often a root cause of conflict, both in local communities and between nations. Only by listening to the experiences of the marginalised, and addressing injustices such as discrimination and poverty, will we be able to build a truly peaceful world.

PRAYER

We ask for the honest peace of struggles acknowledged, the demanding peace of forgiveness, the longed-for peace of justice established. Lord, grant us peace.
[Simeon Mitchell is Secretary for Church and Society for the URC]
