Faith Files Philip Webb: A year without war? There is a future for the man of peace
I HOPE you had a happy and peaceful Christmas.
Getting ready must have been a real rush for those people who thought the world would end on December 21. December 22 is rather late to start your shopping!
But no doubt you began planning long before that – and perhaps now you are looking ahead to this new year and wondering what 2013 will bring.
There are plenty of predictions in the papers but also some anxiety.

Maybe you are wondering whether you will have a job, a home, a family. But so many are asking, will there be peace?
When the new millennium dawned there was such excitement – who could have foreseen the tragedy of 9/11 that came so soon thereafter?
And war seems to have raged around the world ever since, just as before.
In 1999, Jeremy Gilley founded "Peace One Day".
This non-profit organisation was rewarded on September 21, 2001, when UN member states unanimously adopted the first-ever day of global ceasefire and non-violence called "Peace Day."
A day would be good. How about a whole year? "A Year Without War" is a dedicated community of people around the world with a common desire of 2020 being a year without war.
You can find out more at ayearwithoutwar.org.
But why wait until 2020? Each year begins with one day – each movement begins with one person and that could be you or me.
Remember Psalm 37:37 "Consider the blameless, observe the upright; there is a future for the man of peace."
