Advent Peace 3, Peace in our Communities
Pastor Rob Myallis   -  

Advent 3 (December 10, 2023)

Sometimes it feels like the fabric of our society is coming apart.   When it comes to divisive issues, we often feel like we lack the common moral framework to find common ground.

How can we stitch society back together and find ways to live in peace with people with whom we disagree?  Pastor Rob explores two proposals

a)  to use politics to enforce our values

b)  to avoid the messiness of life altogether

While both of these may be attractive, Mary in her song of praise (Luke 1:46-55), warns us against seeking political domination as well as quietism.  What then is the way forward?  Pastor Rob reflects on the way of the cross as a way to stitch society back together.

This is the third in the Advent sermon series on peace.
