Advent Devotional Booklets

“I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.”
Jesus enthusiasts likely cringe at his sharp words in Matthew 10:34. We often imagine a child-inviting, good-news-bringing, body-and-spirit-healing Jesus. Alas, this double-sided Jesus is difficult to witness.
Of all the things he could’ve brought instead of peace, why bring a sword? Precision. With a meticulous commitment to justice, Jesus cuts into our world of destruction: he severs oppressive systems & dissects violent divisions. After a year of one crisis after another, might we embrace the Crisis who arrives in the form of a tiny little baby? Devotional will be available for free from the front desk. Questions?
