Show Notes 

Today we plan to delve into the depths of our souls as we ponder the most important aspects Christmas, which is the incarnation of the Christ and how he has impacted the entire world.

Now, today begins 4th and final episode on Advent with Fr Robert Edwards of St Margaret’s Episcopal Church. The reason for the shows on Advent is to add clarity on the importance of the arrival of Jesus, his teaching, his actions, and his saving grace.

In the last three shows we have talked about how the coming of Jesus brought light into a world of darkness, the humility of the man and how humility is needed for all of us, and thirdly on Hope which was my favorite episode thus far. One thing Jesus brought to the world was hope, something we all desire to feel in our hearts.

Today, I want to talk about what I consider the most under-stated and yet most important gifts that Jesus brought into the world is Peace. I believe that peace may perhaps be the most desperate longing of every single person in the world.

When the angels appeared to the shepherds at the birth of Jesus one of the things they proclaimed, was “Glory to God in the highest and peace on earth toward mankind…”

And yet Peace is a much-ignored topic in Bible discussions. I want to change that today with Fr Roberts Edwards of St Margaret’s Episcopal Church in San Juan Capistrano, CA.
