Peace – The Second Sunday of Advent
Peace is something that we all want, but it’s something that is so very hard to find. However, the Bible tells us that Jesus has come to bring us peace. It’s one of the things that we celebrate in the Advent season. But what is true peace? In Hebrew, the word for peace, “shalom”, means more than just stillness and calm. It speaks of human flourishing in every area of life. That is the type of peace that Christ came to offer and that’s the same type of peace that we are called to share with the world around us.
