The Christ and the Tree of Life

( copyright 2007 Hannah Balcam)


We place our trust in God, the holy  and all-glorious Trinity, who dwelleth also in the Spirit of man.

We place our trust in Christ, the Lord of love and wisdom, first among many brethren, who leadeth us to the glory of the Father, and is himself the way, the truth and the life.

We place our trust in the law of good which rules the world; we strive towards the ancient narrow path that leads to eternal life: we know that we serve our Master best when we serve our brother man. So shall his power rest upon us + and peace for evermore ~ Amen  


A Prayer for Peace.


O hidden life of God,

Outside which nothing can exist;

help us to see Thee in the face of our enemies and to love Thee in them.

So shall Thy Peace spread over the world and Thy Will shall at last be done on Earth

as it is done in Heaven.
