“The wolf shall live with the lamb, the leopard shall lie down with the kid”
To bring the Peaceable Realm we must speak up and believe the resurrection when we are weak; or listen intently and take up the cross when we are powerful. The cycle of gospel living and the power of acceptance can transform. When I lived in Belfast, Northern Ireland I changed and I transformed into an advocate of ecumenism and global citizenry. I learned long ago to speak up. In Belfast many heads would turn and they would tactfully say “you’re either a Canadian or an American”, never asking “where are you from” as they do here thinking I must be a foreigner. Let people know you accept them. Transformation results.
