Written by Rev. Chris Shorow

Recently, Shirley Brown gave me a copy of an article I wrote for the church newsletter shortly after my arrival at the church, circa 2003. I think she was teasing me because my picture for the article shows a skinnier version of me with darker hair—she said I look like my son William. For that Chris’ Crossing (neat title, huh?) I wrote about the soon-to-be war in Iraq. The times were a little bit like they are now, full of fear of the other, fear of what could happen in the future. I think this prayer still speaks to us:


As we all long for peace in our world, prayer is a wonderful place to start. It reminds me of one of my favorite scriptures: “There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to the promise.” (Gal. 3:28-9) Certainly all of us who are Abraham’s offspring, Jew, Christian, and Muslim, need to be heirs to the promise of peace in our world. Let us continue to pray.
