As we continue our advent journey we consider the gift of peace that comes to us in Jesus Christ. This peace includes our reconciliation to God through the cross of Christ but so much more. It includes not only a relationship set right but a life set right as well. Indeed one day God's peace will reach into every corner of creation as God's redeeming power is brought to bear upon it and all things are made new. A world set right, this is peace. As we wait and pray for that today, we are called to let God's peace reach into ever corner of our lives. We are also called to join in God's working peace-making in the world around us as a witness of God's love and intent.
