TODAY’S VERSE TO PONDER: If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. — Romans 12:18 (NIV)

In today’s edition of the Hopeful Cottage Podcast, we awaken with a glimmer of hope for lasting peace in the Korean Peninsula, as leaders of North Korea and South Korea meet. Is this the answer to prayers for peace in the region, and by extension, in the world? Is this a macro-example of how we all can and should seek peace in our own lives? Only time will tell. Let us continue to pray for — and passionately pursue — PEACE.
