The Voice of Peace
The word “peace” is central for God’s people to hear time and again as part of worship. The peace of the Lord is exchanged between pastor and congregation and often also spoken among the people of the congregation. It is the last word in the Benediction and is therefore the most frequently used word to close the service. It is our blessing to hear that word of peace from our Lord once again today in our world—which also has unrest and challenges.
