Sunday Inspiration: Did I offer peace today? By Emilie Richards | September 18, 2022 | 6 “Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone’s face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions. -Henri Nouwen Posted in Sunday Inspiration
Good questions to live one’s life by!
Thank you for the reminder.
This is awesome, and I think I will use this in my church bulletin! Thanks, Emily!
Talking about offering each other a sign of peace. I haven’t been able to go to church in quite a while. I was able to return last week. Offering each other a sign of peace? Everyone came to me and offered me peace and healing. What really moved me was a young teen girl came and wrapped her arms around me and said “I missed you”. Three little words that I thought of all week. At the sign of peace everyone shouted out WELCOME BACK RITA. That 45 minutes made my day. Actually made my week. It doesn’t take a whole lot to make someone’s day.
Rita, what a lovely story. There is no greater tribute than being missed.
One of my favorite things I get to do is bring a smile to children who visit the library. I want their visit to be as memorable as my visits were at their age. And it brings a smile to my face.
