Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in all ways. The Lord be with all of you. —2 Thessalonians 3:16

It is historically and biologically true that there can be no birth and growth without birth and growing pains. Whenever there is the emergency of the new we confront the recalcitrance of the old. So the tensions which we witness in the world today are indicative of the fact that a new world order is being born and an old order is passing away. Martin Luther King, Jr. Address at First Annual Institute on Nonviolence and Social Change, Montgomery, Alabama, December 1956

Let something new be born among us. Let birth and growth, with their accompanying growing pains, make way for the vision of justice, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, and unity which has been your deepest longing all along. Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
