God's Peace

During last Sunday’s Service a visitor was sitting in front of me. At the passing of the Peace, as is my custom, I said: “God’s Peace be with you.”

She in turn replied: “Thank you, I receive it.”

That’s the first time I can remember that response to the “Peace” and also the first time I feel I’ve been moved by someone’s reply. My offer, truly given, was truly received and not just taken as a greeting.

I pray that some future time I too can be so bold as to say: “Thank you, I receive it.”
