FORCES of evil seem to he gathering strength and momentum, and it is easy to throw one's hands up in horror and despair. But where there is evil, grace abounds also. Let us listen with our hearts as well as our ears to our spiritual leaders when they ask us earnestly to pray for peace in our society.
I do feel, however, that that prayer must be accompanied by reparation. Let us re-read Jonah 3, and apply it to to-day. We may not all be able to be active in the cause of peace, and those of us who cannot, should sumort those who can by prayer and sacrifice.
In this way everyone, the oldest to the youngest can take part it a Christian action which is. after all, very much our responsibility. There can be no peace and love within ourselves unless we turn to God in humility and with a repentant heart.
