Dear members and friends of St. Peter's Anglican Church,


The peace of the Lord be always with you.




In Matthew 5:21-22 we read: 21 “You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘You shall not murder,[a] and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’  22 But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister[b][ c] will be subject to judgment."  Jesus points out that the judgement for murder is the same as that of getting angry with your brother or sister.  People tend to hate those who make them feel angry or annoyed but the Holy Bible warns us not to be angry as anger leads to evil.

What should we do?  Psalm 37: 8 says :  " Refrain from anger and turn from wrath leads to evil."  Jesus tells us what we should do in Luke 6:27-28: " But I tell you who hear me: love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you."  The medicine that heals anger is love in the name of Jesus.  "In the name of Jesus we have the victory."

May God bless you as you bless others and protect you with your families and friends in the name of Jesus.


Fr. James.
