This coming Sunday is the second Sunday of Advent, which marks the period of time in the church year, as we wait and prepare for the arrival of Christmas day. The theme for this week is peace. Peace is not just the absence of conflict but the good news that everything is in harmony with each other – God and us, us and others, us and the world we live in.

John is his Gospel wrote these words, spoken by Jesus,

“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart.
And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give.
So don’t be troubled or afraid.

(Joh 14:27)

In a world where peace seems too difficult to find, perhaps Jesus can be the source of peace you need in your situation.
