In Luke 2:14, we read the words of the angels to the shepherds, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased.”
Christmas is known as a joyful time filled with family, food, presents, and warmth. But if we are honest, many times that joy is intermingled with hurt. Christmas can remind us of our broken relationships, the difficulty of life, and of how lonely we are. In other words, we can feel a lack peace (wholeness, fullness, and freedom from conflict).
In this sermon from December 15, we hear that while Advent reminds us that that we are broken, but God promises and provides peace.
