Second Sunday of Advent

Tomorrow is the second Sunday of Advent. Just as the first week was all about "Hope," the second week is all about "Peace." I wonder if anyone else out there finds it strange that this year the Second Sunday of Advent falls on Pearl Harbor Day?

While many pulpits across this country will have sermons preached on peace, many people will be remembering one of the darkest days of the last century. In a way, I think it is more than fitting to be preaching peace on this day. In fact, I think that we should probably be preaching peace more often than we do. We still live in turbulent times. The threat of terrorism and and even pirates still make the news. Many people live in fear.

This can only change when we let the Prince of Peace into our own lives and share Him with others. As you continue your Advent journey, make sure you do your part to spread peace wherever you go: the mall, the grocery store, Wal-Mart, or even church!

If you were 25 years younger and cooler you would have ended that blog with "peace out" and all the cool kids would have been impressed. :-)
I hadn't realized it was Pearl Harbor Day until you mentioned it.
