The songs of Advent-Peace are a protest against the way the world now is. They sing of the Church’s stubborn refusal to accept the way things are. We sing songs of God’s plan to bring wholeness to the suffering and poor living in our land of broken promises where the nations are so filled with terror that violence is all they know. The songs of Advent-Peace sing of the God of the gospel who has promised to reorder the world. They summon us to lean into the present tense of the reign of the Prince of Peace who has promised a future God intends to bring.
God of Advent, may the melodies and harmonies of our songs change our minds and move our hands as your Spirit guides us in the way of peace.
