Missionaries Diane and Mark Abbott with their children. Recently Spain celebrated the 30th anniversary of the beginning of democracy after a long, 40-year dictatorship under Generalissimo Francisco Franco. This brings back memories because we were in Granada as university students when the country held a referendum in which 84% of the people voted in favor of the transition to democracy. My, how things have changed!

Prayer of the week: Gentle, loving Spirit breathe into us this day the spirit of peacemaking. Bind our hearts with the hearts of all who suffer from war and violence. When impatience and war seem inevitable, fill us with your healing spirit. When military might and fears seem more powerful than calls for peace, ground us in hope. For it is not by might, nor by power, but by your spirit that all things are possible. Lead us from the ways of war into the paths of peace this day. Amen.
