Passage: Luke 2:1-15 (ESV)
Service Type:

In this second week of Advent, our attention is turned toward the angelic pronouncement of “peace on earth.” With Jesus’ birth, a peace is born into the hearts of humanity in a way that was not possible prior. The peace that comes through Jesus is not a peace at the expense of others, as was the case with the peace of Rome (the pax Romana). It is not the absence of war or conflict that we would all desire and wish for. It is a peace in the midst of and in spite of conflict; a peace that passes understanding; a peace that is founded on faith and trust in the God who created and sustains the world.
