Advent: Peace

Dear Redemption City Family,

Peace. Christmas cards speak about it. Christmas carols sing about it. Even the angels proclaimed it -- “peace on earth”. Peace is not niceness or political correctness. It is not just the absence of armed conflict or “peaceful co-existence.” It is rather a reconciled relationship between people that flows from a right relationship with God. 

The world is obviously not at peace because human hearts are not at peace. We are all pulled in opposite directions by competing desires and are torn apart by loyalties to different gods.

I pray you’ll join us as we explore what it means to know the peace Jesus provides. Don’t allow the holidays to steal your joy, but rather allow the grace of God to transform and renew you.  

Christ is All, 
Pastor Juan
