Week 2 of Advent: Peace
Peace is such an important part of Advent, but it is easier said than done. Whether it is peace with extended family or simply a sense of peace when you are quiet and alone, peace is a lofty goal in any context. Fortunately, during Advent we take the time to remember that Jesus came to bring us peace, and as we wait for Him we can make choices that bring peace to others. Maybe it is an act of kindness to your neighbours. Perhaps it is about extending grace to the person ahead of you in the check out line price matching half the cart. It might even mean being kind to yourself and reminding yourself that there is nothing you can do to make God love you more and nothing you can do to make God love you less. We challenge the students to make Advent come alive in tangible ways, and we encourage you to take steps as a family to do the same. Talk about ways to bring peace to each other and the community as a family this week.
