In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
“…the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:7)
“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.” (Philippians 4:8–9)
God’s peace comes as a gift to us. It is not a commodity. As Christians our identity is the crucified and risen Christ. Our life is shaped by studying and meditating on God’s Word so that we might know what is true, honorable, just, lovely, commendable and excellent.
We then put into practice those things we have learned. We practice by serving our neighbor in love.

Almighty God, You invite us to trust in You for our salvation. Deal with us not in the severity of Your judgment but by the greatness of Your mercy; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
