It's a simple request but it's also complicated. The complicated part has to do with the dark side within us. How can there be peace on earth if we can't even have peace inside our own heads? My hope is in the one who will come. For many it will be a first appearance. For others it will be an encore much greater than the one shepherds witnessed 2,000 years ago in an unexpected place.
Black Friday is nothing more than a feeble attempt to fill a void only Jesus can satisfy. Yesterday we were thankful. Today we're elbowing strangers to be the first one in line to get more stuff we really don't need. What happened to the peace? Thirty days. That's all we have to get ready. It's not about more stuff. It's about peace. This is my wish. Are you with me? Have a great day.
