God calls you to be priest, prophet and leader

The Peace Pulpit: Have we ever thought about the moment when God called me, each of us? Maybe we don't think of it that way, but it goes back to our baptism.


Commit to work with Jesus to make the reign of God happen

The Peace Pulpit: What is God's main message and one that we need especially to hear in our time? It's a message about God is love; where there is love, there is God.


'Blessed are those who hear the word of God and do it.'

The Peace Pulpit: As we make this final preparation then for the celebration of the birth of Jesus, we should listen carefully to how Jesus wants us to respond. And I think the lessons today are very clear. 


Discover God in our midst and rejoice

The Peace Pulpit: As we try to discover God within our midst, in our hearts, in the depths of our being, as Christmas approaches, we will do it if we begin to follow more closely the way Jesus teaches us, not just by his words but by his example.
