Peace

Yesterday morning our church lit the Advent candle of peace. Webster's defines peace as "a state of tranquility or quiet: such as freedom from civil disturbance, or a state of security or order within a community provided for by law or custom." Peace can be incredibly elusive especially when you consider the brokeness of the world we live, and the empty pursuits we so often chase after to somehow find peace.  But allow me to share is another great insight about the nature of peace from C. S. Lewis:"God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing."
