Our God is merciful and tender.
He will guide our steps
into the path of peace.

Luke 1:78-79

On Christmas eve, during the
Franco-Prussian War in 1870,
French soldiers and German
soldiers faced each other in
trenches, a short distance apart.

Suddenly, a French soldier stood
on top of the mound of dirt and
began singing “O Holy Night.”
Not a shot was fired.

When the French soldier ended,
a German soldier did the same,
singing “From Heaven to Earth
Come.” Not a soldier present that
Christmas ever forgot the event.

What lesson might that event
hold me? For our world?

Someday people will want peace
so badly that governments had
better get out of their way and let
them have it.

Dwight D. Eisenhower
