The Peace of Advent Two

December 10, 2017

In the Old Testament, we find the beautiful Hebrew word, Shalom. Shalom is the expression of the desire for the very best for a person. For the Christian, this is the wish for a person to know Jesus. The Christ follower knows the highest desire, the ultimate good, THE Shalom is the presence of Christ which brings persistent peace. We understand that peace is not what is outside and around us but rather true peace is Christ in us. As we begin the second week of Advent - we light the peace candle.  We thank God for our Christ and wish each other Shalom.




(together in Christ we light the Peace candle)

BLESSED Lord, who hast caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning; Grant that we may hear, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that by patience and comfort of thy holy Word, we may embrace, and ever hold fast, the blessed hope of everlasting life, which thou hast given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen


Isaiah 42:16 "And I will lead the blind in a way that they do not know, in paths that they have not known I will guide them. I will turn the darkness before them into light, the rough places into level ground. These are the things I do, and I do not forsake them."

(The classic video below is from 1977 and great to share during this time of Advent. It is a call for peace sung by two voices now silenced - that even in lives of chaos, stress, pressure and turmoil there is a deep call to peace. If your browser will not display a video below you can see it here: Bing Crosby and David Bowie)
