2nd Sunday of Advent | Peace | Isaiah 9:6-7
Have you ever been to the reading of a will? Like young children looking forward to Christmas morning to see what they may get from Santa, Advent is a time of anticipation and expectation. The question excited youngsters wonder is “What will I get?” God’s present is “to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.” The child whose birth we celebrate is not a fond memory but an eternal presence. Emmanuel–God with us. Our Prince of Peace.
