The Advent of Peace

The Advent of Peace

Today, December 6, 2020, is the second Sunday of Advent.  The theme for the second Sunday of Advent is Peace.

As part of our advent liturgy, we light the candle of Peace, and we contemplate the coming celebration of the birth of the Christ child.  Our experience of the world these days holds much change, much turmoil, much difficulty.  As we face challenges that we have never faced before, it can perhaps give us insight as we imagine how Mary and Joseph might have felt as they sought to follow God’s will for their lives.  

The video below shares a liturgy for lighting the Candle of Peace and provides a space and time to think about what Peace means to us.  The video allows a few moments to consider, but feel free to pause the video if you want to take more time to contemplate.  If you are watching with others, please pause and take time to share with one another what Peace means to you. 

If you would like to read the liturgy yourself, a document can be accessed here:  Advent Peace – 2 readers

As we journey through this second week of Advent, may you experience a deep peace that is rooted in the knowledge that you are beloved, and the ongoing assurance that God is with us.  May God bless you in quiet moments of stillness throughout the coming week, granting you strength to meet each challenge you face. 

If you would like to see the video, or read the liturgy, for the first Sunday of Advent, you can find it on last week’s blog post here.

Let’s build something together.

God is weaving a tapestry of care
that connects all of us in Grace.
Come. Be part of it.
