Peacemaking, like Charity, begins at Home

CAPE ARGUS – 1939, February 20
Lines from Sunday’s sermon
“Getting right with God involves an apology to the brother you have injured. Church attendance and good works are no substitute for the costly act of restitution that will put the broken human relationship right. Perhaps there was wrong on both sides; but never mind that, it is not your business. Confess your own sin with real repentance and a real desire for friendship. We all want to be peacemakers these days, and yet how can there be peace between the nations if there is no real peace among us? Peacemaking, like charity, begins at home.” – The Rev. James Rodger, Presbyterian Church, Bellville.
