Even though peace means different things to different people, the truth remains that Christ alone can bring true peace. In this time of uncertainty or business, worry or restlessness, we are all called to come to Christ as he calls us and proclaims, "you will find rest for your souls." (Mt. 11:29). Upon visiting a school this weak, one young man proclaimed, "I need peace so that I can go to school." This is true in a place where insecurity causes schools to close for long periods at a time. This is true in a place where families could never hope to send all their children to school. For this young man, Christ's peace allows him to have an education. In what ways do you need the peace (rest) of Christ this advent season?
