is a transliteration of the Greek word, εγερσις, which has the meaning of being roused to life. Thus, it is my hope that what you find on this blog will empower, arouse, stimulate, excite, and animate your life--your soul, your spirit--the wholeness of who you are.

Imperfect Peace

These words from Psalm 85:10 have stayed with me all through this second week of Advent:

“Righteousness and peace will kiss each other.”

So in today’s reading they again were forefront along with 2 Peter 3:13.

We wait for new heavens and a new earth, where righteousness is at home.”

Imperfect peace comes to mind. The in-between time—that is, the time between the first advent and the second—is a time of imperfect peace. In this time, we don’t hear peace clearly. We don’t see peace fully. We don’t live peace completely. But a time is coming when we will have perfect peace, a time when living rightly will kiss peace and both will have a home.

Peace perfected and rightness realized.
