Could there be any more of an oxymoron than the lighting of Advent’s second candle of “peace.”
The Christmas season brings on many emotions. But peace?
There will celebrations, parties, visitors, travel, uncomfortable social situations and possibly even some financial burdens.

For some who are now separated from loved ones, there will be loneliness and tears.
We light the candle anyway.
PORTAL TO HEAVEN: There is no magic to a candle, but there is a permanency to The Prince of Peace.
For unto us a child is born…The Prince of Peace…Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light…
Isaiah 9:6 KJV, Matthew 11:28-20 NIV
