Advent, Day 5 – Got Peace?

What is peace? Is it something you have? Is it something you make? Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "Peace is not the abscence of conflict, but the presence of justice." We live in a time of great conflict between order and chaos. In some ways we always have. Consider what you might do today that responds to conflict in a way that creates space for justice - not for judgement, but for fair and equal treatment of all.

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid. John 14:27
