The Second Sunday of Advent is Peace Sunday.
What does Peace look like to you? What about God's Peace? Or the Peace of Christ? Is that different from other kinds of peace? Or is all peace a gift of God?
It's been on hold for a while due to COVID, but my favourite part of worship has long been Passing the Peace, in which we circulate and greet each other with, "The Peace of Christ be with you." The experience is most powerful when I encounter someone I don't especially feel peaceful towards.
My image of peace this year is Jesus' family. It is in our families, above all, that peace is most important, most difficult, and most blessed when it is present.
Peace be with you!
