In these troubled times, when the human temptation towards acting our hatred and violence is exacerbated by social media, our faithful response can be--among other things--to make the peace prayer of St. Francis a habit of the heart. And that way, we can begin to make peace a habit.
Praying with sincerity can and does make a life changing difference, and the peace prayer of St. Francis exemplifies sincerity. So please join us in praying "Make me a channel of your peace..." for 21 days, beginning on Friday, September 1.
Why 21 days? Well, they say it takes 21 consecutive days to establish a behavior as a habit.
After the 21 days are up, we encourage you to participate in the International Day of Prayer for Peace Taizé service in the church on Thursday evening, September 21 at 7:00pm, which will be the culmination of our communal prayer practice.

Please join us in making peace a habit.
