How do you define peace? It’s one of those things that might be easiest to describe by what it isn’t. It isn’t conflict, doubt, turmoil, worry, etc. It’s . . . well, it’s peace. Let your God help. He’s in the peace business. At great cost, he made peace with you. And now, sometimes at cost to us, we can make peace with even our enemies. Welcome to the second week of the Christian church’s season of Advent. We light the second candle of our Advent wreath today—the candle of peace. It is our prayer that as you encounter Jesus today through his Word and sacrament you enjoy peace.
