This second week of Advent is focused on the theme of PEACE. When we light the second candle on our Advent Wreath, we are invited to call to mind the many ways the PEACE of the Lord is with us always. In times when conflict, power and the fight for control dominate our daily discussions, invite PEACE into your heart. Speak kindly. Love deeply. Forgive easily. Share PEACE with those around you so that we might make our families, community and world a better place to live.
