Advent – PEACE is available!
It is easy just to think of Advent as a time to prepare for Christmas. That, however, is not the point. We look to Christmas during Advent because it reminds us God is at work in the world, Advent is a time to notice that God’s work is not yet complete. Jesus states in Revelation 21:5, “behold I am making all things new.” Are we open to the renewal of God in our own lives? Have we set our eyes on our relationship with God? The answer to that question for all of us is often no. Thankfully we have Advent, which refocuses our lives on the great hope we have, and the call to love that beckons us each day.
