These are some of our reflections on peace.

What is peace?

Do we have it? How do we know we don’t?

How can we get it? What can we do?

We make wreathes out of the rosemary, olive branches and bay leaves growing in our garden – symbols of evergreen to represent everlasting life brought through Jesus and the circular shape of the wreath represents God, with no beginning and no end.

Rosemary – an emblem of both fidelity and remembrance

Olive branch – used for pleading for peace and a sign after the great flood that the dove found land and a promise it would not flood again.

Bay laurel – laurel wreath – victory.
