Robert Louis Stevenson July 28, 2017

Robert Louis Stevenson, famous for Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde, in failing health sought a favorable climate. He chose Samoa, in the South Pacific. Finding that the native chiefs were constantly at war with one another, he gradually resolved their conflicts and taught them to be at peace. In gratitude, the Samoans built a highway in his name, which they called, “The Road of the Loving Heart.” A plaque explains that the highway was built to please Stevenson “because he had brought them joy and peace.”Jesus too brought peace to troubled hearts everywhere, but it is eternal peace. Paul the Apostle wrote that Jesus “made peace by the blood of His Cross.” Our Lord makes a promise to all of us who recognize our spiritual need and receive Him as Saviour, “my peace I give to you.”
