“Peace” is often used to describe the feeling we get as we sit around the fire with friends, family, and lots of great food. The peace of Christmas is sometimes equated only with the comfort of the season or with family members setting aside differences. In reality, the peace of Christmas is so much more. The peace announced by the angels on the night of Jesus’ birth signaled the end of hostility and strife between God and mankind. Because of the Christchild, the war with God as ended. Peace is ours!
